What Will You Learn?

Considering a holistic approach to education? Discover an education system that looks beyond pure academia – taking a whole-person viewpoint. Learn about holistic education’s core concepts, philosophies and curriculums. And explore its similarities and differences compared with other systems of education.

Rudolf Steiner was at the centre of the holistic approach to education. You’ll learn who he was and the history of Steiner Waldorf's schools. We’ll delve into the schools’ three-stage approach to holistic development in children. You'll explore the core concepts and spiritual underpinnings of Steiner Education. You’ll also consider its pros and cons.

We’ll run through the Steiner Waldorf curriculum, from early years to lower and upper school. You’ll learn about subject-specific information and the teacher's role in the holistic approach to education. We’ll also compare Steiner Waldorf to Montessori, Reggio Emilia, and mainstream schooling.

Celebrations play an important part in holistic education. You’ll learn about significant festivals and the conscious use of colour in the holistic approach to education.

The course concludes by examining another important aspect of holistic education: anthroposophy. You’ll learn about its philosophical concepts and the ideas it puts forward on several topics.

By studying this course, you will learn about the following:

  • Rudolf Steiner and the formation of Steiner Waldorf schools
  • Steiner Waldorf schools’ holistic approach to education
  • The curriculum used in Steiner Waldorf schools
  • The teacher's role in holistic education
  • Differing approaches to education
