In the home

Steiner education promotes peace and harmony whilst discouraging aggressive or violent behaviours. The home is encouraged to maintain an environment for the children to engage in explorative, active play, develop self-discipline and generally regulate exposure to inappropriate use of technology.

Television

The child’s natural development can be severely harmed through exposure to television. Their senses of touch, life, movement and balance are the child’s foundations for future development. If early sense development is harmed through watching television, other senses will also suffer.

Children today are losing their natural sense of warmth, becoming old before their time and developing an attitude of coldness to the world in which they live. Once this happens, the child’s undeveloped individuality cannot grow, their originality and creativity will atrophy, leaving them vulnerable to negative impulses. The developing child needs to feel supported as they grow, to be able to develop healthy sense perceptions and nurture a sense of sympathy for the outer world through which the young individual can develop, thus preparing a strong foundation for life. Television, although entertaining, creates a lower realm of fantasy for the child that they take deep into their soul and reproduce/imitate in their play. This imitation is an outer sign of what is resonating deep in the child’s developing organs.

Computer Games & Computer Use

These activities are also considered inappropriate in supporting the child’s developmental needs and are discouraged until adolescence.

Home Visits

Our teachers will schedule home visits to better understand the child’s home environment and help build the parental relationship. This greatly assists all parties in delivering a sense of nurture and holistic care of the child’s welfare.

Reports & Interviews

The School issues written reports to parents twice a year, typically at the end of Semester 1 and at the end of Semester 2.

The school also offers parents individual meetings with class teachers after reports have been issued. Of course parents are always welcome to make an appointment with the child’s teacher to discuss progress or concerns.

Parent Teacher Meetings

Each term a Parent Teacher Evening is held by each Class Teacher/Class Guardian. These meetings are a wonderful opportunity to become informed about your child’s classroom activities, a revision of what the class has been experiencing and how the teacher is implementing our curriculum to meet your child’s developmental needs.
