Inspiring Children to Learn
RAPHAELI WALDORF SCHOOL
Raphaeli waldorf school
In the spectacular coastal town of Plettenberg Bay, South Africa, Raphaeli Waldorf School has been sharing the wealth of Rudolf Steiner’s ‘Waldorf curriculum’ with our Garden Route community since 2009. We offer Early Childhood Development – Kindergarten & Playgroup as well as Primary School education.
We are one of 15 Waldorf Schools in South Africa and our global family extends to over 1000 Schools and 2000 pre-schools worldwide. We all share the philosophy that children should be inspired to learn according to their age appropriate developmental capacities.
Perched on a hill with a panoramic view of the Tsitsikamma Mountains, we have the space to grow our school. Our 21 hectare property affords us the opportunity to nurture an environmentally responsible community of emergent adults who are confident, caring and eager for the future.
