Welcome to Central Coast Rudolf Steiner School
The Central Coast Rudolf Steiner School offers an affordable contemporary educational pathway from Early Childhood to Year 10. The school's outstanding facilities are located within a beautiful bush setting. Our holistic curriculum fosters academic excellence whilst placing great importance on creative as well as practical experiences. Our program is fully registered and approved by the NSW Board of Studies. We inspire students with a love of learning through our commitment to meeting the needs and abilities of each individual. Central Coast Rudolf Steiner School students graduate equipped to fulfill their potential with confidence resilience and a sense of purpose.
We offer a three-day program which gently introduces the child to a calm unhurried approach to learning. The program gives generous opportunities for free imaginative play and our beautiful Home-like environment is a place where each individual is lovingly nurtured. At this stage what the child learns is mainly imparted through example and the day is about doing everyday tasks together- such as baking the bread for morning tea. Artistic activities such as painting drawing craft puppetry and storytelling foster the child’s imagination. A deep love of Mother Nature is awakened as the changing seasons are observed and celebrated.
Our Kindergarten offers a play-based curriculum which fosters the child’s physical social emotional and cognitive development. The kindergarten is orderly beautiful and calm inviting the child to engage in learning in a secure creative and inspiring environment. Our play materials are natural and open-ended- allowing the child’s imagination to come alive. Building strong foundations for literacy we develop a genuine love of language through verse song rhythms rhymes and stories. The child experiences a rich variety of oral language experiences. Our arts and craft activities- such as beeswax modelling finger knitting weaving sewing and painting- develop dexterity and an appreciation of beauty and craftsmanship.
In our primary school the individual is celebrated within a strong supportive community. Our teachers are fully qualified and dedicated to nurturing a genuine love of learning in each child. Each class has a teacher who stays with that class from class one until the end of class seven comprehensively tracking the learning needs of each individual. Class teachers are supported by specialist language arts pE library and music teachers.
Our secondary program extends to Year 10. Our curriculum invites students to enrich their academic thinking with a sense of social responsibility and ethical engagement. The integrated inquiry-based approach continues within a curriculum that is increasingly specialised. Our students have access to an impressive suite of Apple laptops and are taught to use technology responsibly and creatively. Our exciting outdoor education program includes the Duke of Edinburgh option. Music drama and visual arts are central to an approach to learning that is both engaging and relevant. A highlight of our class 10 experience is the service learning component where students can travel to Cambodia and work at an orphanage. Such experiences are formative in gaining perspective and a sense of responsible global citizenship. Our students take their place in the world with confidence.
