Motueka Rudolf Steiner School and Kindergarten

The Motueka Rudolf Steiner School is part of the global Steiner / Waldorf school movement. We offer playgroups, kindergarten and an independent primary school to about 100 children.

Primary school offers classes 1-7 with graduates usually going on to Motueka High School. See an interview with the high school principal here. The school operates a farm and all students are involved in land based activities such as gardening, nature studies and tree planting.

There are many unique features about the Waldorf curriculum, which is both broad and holistic.

Emphasis is given to the moral, social and emotional development as well as academic and physical growth of each child. Visit our website to learn more about the curriculum, the school and its community.
