Our contemporary Steiner curriculum is broad, balanced, ambitious and challenging; both meeting and exceeding the Australian National Curriculum. 

Steiner engages the brain, body and the whole self to enable young people to have a deep understanding of both the world and themselves - integrating practical work, projects and the arts into all academic disciplines, including Maths, English, Sciences and Humanities.

The priority of the Steiner ethos is to provide a learning environment where children can find the joy in learning and experience the richness and imagination of childhood. The curriculum is rooted in the principal that it should meet the needs of, and be in harmony with, children at each stage of their physical, emotional, spiritual and mental development. The core subjects of the curriculum are taught in thematic blocks and all lessons include a balance of artistic, practical and intellectual content.

Steiner Education Australia is the not for profit national association and peak body representing Steiner schools and Associate members throughout the states and territories of Australia. Please visit Steiner Education Australia to learn more about the curriculum.
