Our adapted Waldorf curriculum presents traditional scholastic subjects, both academically and experientially, stimulating young minds and nurturing healthy emotional development. And, as in every other Waldorf school, our curriculum allows children to work with their hands every day, encouraging practical, social, and artistic growth. Our wide range of educational programming is sequential, based on the chronological age of students, and is designed to enhance and maximize every child’s potential. In addition to age-appropriate class assignments, small group and individualized instruction addresses each child’s needs and abilities. Waldorf education is based upon the studies of Rudolf Steiner, an Austrian educator and philosopher. Steiner called his research into human nature and development anthroposophy, "wisdom of the human." Waldorf teachers, inspired by anthroposophy’s core idea that every person consists of a "body, soul, and eternal spirit," help children to relate what they learn intellectually to their emotions and to their will.ChesterCamphill Special Schools - Chester; GlenmooreCamphill Special Schools
