Free Play – Now and Then

For a long time, free play has been neglected for the sake of early literacy and numeracy. The appreciation of free play has only been revived in the last few years. But is it really seen and understood for what it means to the child? How do we, as parents and educators, approach free play? What does it mean to us?

Motueka Rudolf Steiner School Trust

Our small Steiner school community is struggling to fund the school through a difficult year. Please help us get through.

Join us to build a new school

Children at Motueka Rudolf Steiner School get Waldorf education the way parents want it. The school has more freedom to follow the ideals of Waldorf education and the wishes of parents because it has remained independent from state education. This special advantage comes with challenges, especially the lack of state funding. Every year our school community works hard to resource the school and employ teachers. They donate what they can, they fund raise continuously, and they give their time and skills. Now in our 14th year we have hit an especially difficult year and we need extra help to finance the school through to 2016. The school is following a plan to grow the roll, improve facilities and become more financially robust. We have invested in this plan but we have a cashflow problem until the school roll increases next year. We need money now to retain experienced staff so we can start growing in 2016. Our journey to becoming a bigger farm-based school is exciting, but first we must survive this year. Please help us with a donation, so we can continue to offer Waldorf education to Motueka children. *** We are an independent school owned by our community, and part of the global Waldorf School movement. We began as a kindergarten in 1984 and opened a primary school in 2002.
