Waldorf Movements in Singapore

“All knowledge must have wonder for its seed.” Rudolf Steiner

The mission of the Waldorf Steiner Education Association Singapore is to promote Waldorf education in Singapore. We have the following co-operative initiatives to provide educational opportunities for children as well as adults:

  • The Early Childhood Program is a mixed age class for children aged 3.5 – 6+. The class is run by an experienced Waldorf Specialist.
  • Parent and child groups for children are run by mothers interested in Waldorf education.
  • Weekend Waldorf Enrichment classes for children and parents.
  • Craft group. This is an informal drop-in session for anyone interested in Waldorf education who would like to learn to make Waldorf-inspired children’s toys.
  • Workshops by Waldorf education experts from abroad.
  • Seasonal celebrations for the whole community such as Chinese New Year, Easter, Deepavali and Christmas.

The Association and all associated activities are run by the members, who are committed to contribute their time and effort to provide Waldorf education in Singapore. Every member contributes to the community in some way – through the playgroups, craft groups, running of the school, organizing events, etc.

* The Vancouver Waldorf School provides an experiential, age appropriate approach to education based on the insights of Rudolf Steiner that inspires students to love learning, to be creative, open-minded, and compassionate. With a curriculum that integrates all academics with the arts and social learning, Waldorf Education develops not only the left and right hemispheres of the brain, but the whole human being. A child’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual development is considered equally, supporting a conscious unfolding of the individuality within each student. Waldorf graduates possess capacities for empathy and clear, creative and independent thinking that enables them to carry out a chosen course of action with moral courage and social responsibility.
