Steiner education and teaching is based on the understanding of the human being comprised of body, soul and spirit. The whole of the human being is taken into consideration and education is thus viewed as an ‘art’. The spiritual should not be neglected for the physical nor the physical neglected for the spiritual.

The practices are based on reality and life: the whole child (thinking, feeling, and willing) discovers truth, beauty and goodness by making use of everything that is pictorial and tangible. This transpires naturally through the child’s innate devotion and reverence of nature and the cosmos and comes into expression through art, music, language, fairy tales, poems, and games.
