The curriculum is designed with the growing child in mind. Year by year, following the developmental stages of childhood, the curriculum mirrors the inner development of the child and seeks to give the child experiences that they are unconsciously yearning for. This makes the lessons naturally relevant and satisfying.
All the important areas offered in conventional schools are taught - with an approach carefully developed for each age but the timing might be different. The breadth of the curriculum is a unique aspect of Waldorf Education and the material covered is used as an integrated whole, with one part always enhancing another. Children are given daily practice in numeracy and literacy throughout the primary and high school years.
