Cheeks glowing with excitement, eyes wide with wonder, calmly concentrating, feeling thrilled with success – this is what school days are made of!


In the first few grades, small schoolchildren grow into energetic pupils, important members of their classroom community.

Pupils in the first few grades in Steiner schools are highly active, do things by hand using different materials, learn to listen and talk about things – the power of imagination is also harnessed to support learning. The joy of doing things together and learning more skills motivate pupils to learn. Steiner Waldorf pedagogical early education pays a lot of attention on forming a classroom community and developing social skills: creating a balance between external activities and the internal world.
