Prerana Waldorf School believes in protecting the essence of childhood by providing a fully integrated and age appropriate education.

THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF WALDORF

Nursery to XII

The Annual Olympics is an event that celebrates Human Excellence and Grace. Neither of these aspects has anything to do with competition. To ‘compete’ with another puts the integrity of the Human being at stake.

Celebrations

We bring rich and artistic learning experiences which emphasize the human values of truth, beauty, and goodness to encourage a sense of wonder and reverence for our world as well as greater social responsibility.

We promote the healthy physical and social development of every child entrusted into our care, consciously striving to strengthen and nourish body, soul, and spirit.

Our task is to educate the children to become confident, balanced, free thinking human beings who are able to more fully realize their individuality and help them to embrace and direct their unfolding destiny.

We must always remember that the schools are the most important part of our children’s life and future. Not just educating them but also helping them develop their personality. We as parents always felt that our children owe their success to their teachers and School. Hope Schools like Prerana Waldorf will continue to serve the society despite the wrong narrative.

Rudolf Steiner

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.

Core Elements

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.

Dear Parents,

We hope you and your family are safe and healthy as you read this letter.  Thank you for your patience and understanding, as we have been adjusting, like you, to the drastic changes in life and work responsibilities during the last few weeks. We are extremely appreciative of our students, parents, teachers, staff, and administrators for their positivity, flexibility and resilience during these trying times. Although none of us have experienced a pandemic before, we all have to be together, understanding the situation we are in, and limiting our expectations during this challenging phase.

As we miss all of students, distance learning for Prerana Waldorf School is in full motion. We are concerned for our students’ health and well-being, as well as their families.

Our goal is to provide continuous educational opportunities and practice for students while schools are closed but also to eliminate as much stress as feasibly possible for students, parents, and teachers.
Our teachers and our staff are working long hours from home while dealing with their new, but temporary, normal.
While it is our responsibility to continue to help our children learn, we also want to compassionately take into consideration the variety of difficulties that our families and staff  are enduring during this time. We also ask for your patience and understanding as we travel this new territory, too.

Thank you for the photos, the appreciation, and the helpful feedback. Your positive responses are affirming the truly amazing work our faculty is doing to translate their teaching expertise into effective distance learning.  We appreciate you as well for doing your best to carve out space and time in your work and home life to support your children’s learning.

From 17th April 2020 for classes I to X and from 24th April 2020 for class XII scheduled summer vacation is starting, and when school resumes on 11th June for classes I to XII, and on 18th June for Nursery and Kindergarten, hopefully, life will get back to normal, eventually.
After this experience is over, our lives will include more appreciation of our blessings and our freedoms.  “This is not a time for us to panic. This is a time for us to come together.”
A huge debt of gratitude also goes to all of our doctors, nurses, hospital employees, first responders, the state Police and our state leaders for all they are doing to keep us safe and healthy.

Stay at home, stay safe!
