Early Years Open Tour

An opportunity for prospective parents and children to visit the Kindergartens, see our beautiful campus set within three acres of conservation area in Edinburgh,  and to get a feel for the rhythm of the Early Years setting.


Still the largest and fastest growing educational movement globally, there are now over 1,200 Steiner Waldorf schools and almost 2,000 Kindergartens in some 80 countries based upon the principles of the internationally recognised Steiner Waldorf curriculum. Our aim is to develop responsible, free-thinking young people who can contribute to society with initiative and purpose.


The tour will cover the Waldorf curriculum in the early years, learning through play, imitation and doing in an integrated manner. (View Early Years Virtual Tour)


It will also cover the application process and financials (1,140 Hours Programme offering funded ELC places, Tax Free Childcare, Bursary).


It is essential to book prior to the event: Register for Early Years Tour




More than ever nowadays, where things are changing, where the way we interact with the world has become so much more indirect because of new technologies, where we need to cope with a completely different sensory environment, this type of education is more important than ever.”

Nobel Laureate (Neuroscience) & Waldorf graduate, Dr Thomas Sudhöf’s (keynote speech)



This Open Tour is dedicated to the Early Years only. (Our next school tour is in October, where there is an option to visit Classrooms ‘in action’).
