Let Children Get Bored Again

Cold weather weekends are the perfect time to do... nothing. 

"Boredom is something to experience rather than hastily swipe away... boredom is useful. It’s good for you. 
Things happen when you’re bored... Boredom teaches you to respond constructively, to make something happen for yourself. But unless we are faced with a steady diet of stultifying boredom, we never learn how."

Waldorf Admissions Assessments

Following a tour of our school, many parents bring their children in for classroom visitations. These mini immersions offer additional, valuable feedback about a child's academic readiness from veteran teachers and experts.

"Yukta Mookhey, Miss India/ Miss World 1999, says she has found her real calling here in Pune— a city that has brought her closer to nature and prepped her to embark on her new career as an educationist, traversing the path laid out by Rudolf Steiner's Anthroposophy."

Is Social-Emotional Learning the Foundation Of Success?

Q. Is social-emotional learning the foundation of success? ​

A. "Focusing on social and emotional skills is correlated with graduation rates, academic success, career success, mental health and citizen engagement... learning as much about good social and emotional behavior as you do about reading, writing and arithmetic is directly beneficial to virtually every aspect of the human experience."
