The School was started in 1989, through the idea of our trustee Nani Croze from Kitengela Glass, who saw the need for a wholesome education. It is the first Rudolf Steiner School in East Africa. The school started in September 1989 with a small kindergarten, in a rented house on Magadi road. In 1990 the present 20 acre plot was bought. There are presently approximately 325 children in the school; this includes a large boarding with approximately 120 children. The school has grown slowly over the years and has now reached full capacity.
The Waldorf/Steiner schools worldwide follow the Steiner school curriculum which is also referred to as “A Head, Heart and Hand Education”. The academic learning is embedded in artistic and craft activities; this enhances the learning and aids in building the morality of the child. The curriculum provides for the child’s developmental needs and kindles the child’s natural inquisitiveness for the world around. Thus, in a Steiner school children love to learn. Steiner schools provide a supportive base for children of every faith, race and culture. We strive to create a secure, homely and loving environment for children to grow and flourish. We wish our children to grow up into strong and creative human beings with initiative for their life in order that each child can reach his/her full potential.
The school has developed and is developing a beautiful compound for the children. It has a school farm with cows and a vegetable garden. All children receive a breakfast of millet porridge and a hot meal with fresh vegetables provided daily from the school garden. The school farm is presently converting from an organic to a bio-dynamic farm, it also has fruit trees.
