What is Waldorf Education?
Waldorf education is a fully integrated and holistic education which teaches to the whole human being; head, heart, and hands, and embraces, honors, and celebrates our social and cultural diversity. It is one of the fastest growing independent school movements in the world with over 1100 schools in over 75 countries, more than 2000 early childhood programs on six continents, and over 600 institutions for curative education.
early childhood programs
Rudolf Steiner (1865-1925) was a highly respected scientific, literary, and philosophical thinker and scholar, well known for his work with Goethe’s scientific writings and as a progressive innovator. Founded on his insights, Waldorf schools teach out of a curriculum based on the fundamental truth that human beings are three fold in nature, comprising of body, soul, and spirit.
We weave art, music, movement, and practical arts into all of our lessons reflecting the widely diverse and colorful nature of the human experience. By following the natural stages of child development and meeting them in age appropriate ways, we mirror the path of humankind and the patterns of growth in civilization. The children greatly benefit from our integrated and progressive curriculum.
History of the School.
Prerana which means, ‘sublime inspiration’, was founded by Indira and Maj. Varma and opened its doors in 2001. Beginning in 1996 with a successful mainstream school, Mount Banjara High School, the stresses and divisively competitive nature of mainstream education led Indira on a quest for a truly human education which nurtured and protected the sanctity of childhood.
Choosing a school and an educational system for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make.
Our admissions procedure is more than simply filling out forms, providing documents, and paying fees for here at Prerana we want to join and support parents and families in a partnership, the noble and collaborative task of educating their children.
Testimonials from our Waldorf Parents.
Parents look for a school that fosters an inspiring and nurturing environment that would groom children into worthy individuals without sacrificing their magical childhood. Prerana School based on Rudolph Steiner’s indications touched the deepest chords of our sensitivity.Sukanya
Prerana Waldorf has just what my family was looking for. This is a place where the individual spirit of my child is recognized and valued. Art, music and movement are incorporated into virtually every area of the rich curriculum, creating a lively environment for learning. I am excited to have my children in a school that values art, relationships, creative thinking and the natural world. Here children are guided on their own path towards self knowledge and clear thinking.Arif Ebrahim
My son has been attending Prerana Waldorf for two years. He enjoys school and looks forward to going each day. The student teacher ratio is intentionally kept low, the programs appropriate, and teachers are inspiring. We are glad we chose Prerana Waldorf for him, and we are planning on sending our daughter next year. Thanks, Prerana Waldorf, for doing what you do!Aditi Vohra
We are very glad and satisfied with the way our son is shaping up. He doesn’t like missing his school even for a day and he loves his teachers and comes back from school completely recharged. He has become very communicative, expressive, and confident in his day to day activities and in his interaction with other kids of his age as well as grownups. Even on the study front, he has picked up reading and writing English, Hindi and simple mathematics with amazing speed and with great interest. We truly admire and are grateful to Prerana Waldorf School for his all-round development and helping him blossom as a caring and intelligent human being.Sanjila Saxena
