The Central Coast Rudolf Steiner School is situated on 7 acres in Fountaindale,100 kms north of Sydney on the beautiful Central Coast of NSW. The school’s outstanding facilities are located within a beautiful bush setting. The Central Coast Rudolf Steiner School offers a balanced, challenging and contemporary educational pathway from Early Childhood to Year 10.
The pedagogy is shaped in accordance with the needs of the learner. The Steiner tradition respects the rights of children to fully experience the wonder of their childhood. There is ample time for creative self-directed play in kindergarten. This lays a firm, healthy foundation for academic growth as well as the development of social skills and problem-solving skills. We offer an unhurried, unpressured learning environment, which is endowed with beauty, truth and goodness.
Our integrated curriculum enlivens content and connects meaningfully to life. At Central Coast Rudolf Steiner School, learning is a joyful activity. The imagination of the students is fired through our artistic approach to all facets of teaching. In particular, the integration of music, visual and performing arts in our curriculum nourishes the emotional development of the student. An intrinsic love of learning is nurtured.
The curriculum balances academic achievement, artistic experience and practical skills- the head, heart and hands. An active and inquiring style of learning encourages critical thinking for life. Key subjects are taught in ‘main lessons’- blocks of three weeks of the same topic, usually for two hours every morning, allowing for depth, integration and highly engaged learning. Foreign language tuition begins in class one. Our physical education encompasses a varied program- including surfing, circus skills, dance, football, martial arts, AFL and ice-skating. We have excellent on site sporting facilities and offer a challenging outdoor education program including the Duke of Edinburgh award.
Within our non-denominational school context, we embrace a spiritual conception of the human being. Central Coast Rudolf Steiner School’s educational philosophy is mindful and conducive to a sense of resilience and centredness. Our heart-felt approach to learning cultivates an experience of connectedness to life and life’s purpose.
