Welcome to Calder Valley Steiner School
There has been a Steiner Education group in the Calder Valley for over twenty years, and we are now proud to offer provisions from birth up to age 12.
At our beautiful home at St John’s Centre in Cragg Vale we offer our wonderful Kindergarten for ages three to six, and in 2011 we established our school’s Class I, providing full-time Steiner Waldorf education for children once they leave the kindergarten. Parent and Child groups, from birth to three, also run at Machpelah in Hebden Bridge throughout the school year.
We provide a secure, caring, homely environment where your child can grow through play, rhythm and imitation. We provide quality toys and materials allowing the children to develop physical and social skills and creative impulses, as well as using their imagination and fantasy to form the foundations for a healthy adult life.
We hope you will all find support and encouragement within our community and that your child will find a bridge between home and the world beyond. You will certainly find that many others share our aspirations, and together we form a worldwide fellowship through the Steiner Waldorf schools movement.
