Why Pine Forest School?
From Kindergarten to Grade 8, children experience academic material via the scope of movement, age- appropriate discussion, and detailed, artistic exploration. Throughout their education and development, Pine Forest School children are challenged and inspired. We foster the development of educational pride and academic ownership. At Pine Forest School, the student is involved as an active participant in their own education.
What is Waldorf Education?
Waldorf education was first established in 1919 in Europe and has subsequently been adopted in schools around the world. Waldorf Education fosters the development of the whole child. The curriculum is based on the emotional, social, psychological, cognitive and physical development and is a truly comprehensive balance of academic, practical, and artistic activities. Each day includes activities for the body, hands, heart, and the mind.
To further understand Waldorf Education, the following readings are recommended:
