FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND MISCONCEPTIONS
The Steiner teaching approach, by being based on the individual child, develops early, deep-rooted self-confidence and strong communications skills.
Taken as a whole, most subjects that appear in the Queensland Curriculum are also part of the Steiner Curriculum. The key question is at what age a given subject or educational approach is appropriate? The Steiner Curriculum is based on a detailed model of child development encompassing physical, emotional, intellectual and moral development. Each subject is brought to the children at an age when it will be beneficial to their overall development.
