What is Waldorf education?

In 2019, Waldorf education celebrates its 100th anniversary.

Waldorf is the largest and fastest-growing independent school movement in the world. Founded more 90 years ago by Rudolf Steiner, there are today more than 1,000 Waldorf schools worldwide.

At the heart of the Waldorf philosophy is the belief that education is an art. As such, the curriculum is designed to ignite the child’s imagination and develop capacities for creative and independent thinking.

Ashwood Waldorf School is an independent coeducational school, accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), and is a member of the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA) and the Waldorf Early Childhood Association of North America (WECAN).
