The Rudolf Steiner School educates its students at each developmental stage of growth–from early childhood to the adolescent years–through an intentional curriculum and pedagogy. At the Rudolf Steiner School, technology is gradually introduced during the middle school years in a meaningful curriculum, and both media and technology are fully integrated into our high school program to prepare students for college and beyond.
There is research that indicates that the impact of electronic media can have detrimental effects on a young child’s healthy growth and development. We encourage families to incorporate our progressive practice into their children’s daily lives, especially during nursery and kindergarten. To that end, we ask that our families significantly reduce the use of electronic media for their youngest children, progressively introducing media and technology as they advance through the grades.
