What is a Waldorf-Inspired School?

Waldorf education was developed by Rudolf Steiner, an Austrian philosopher and scientist, at the beginning of the 20th century.

Waldorf-inspired methods derive from an instructional model that recognises the specific developmental stages of the child. The Waldorf philosophy views education as an art, so each subject, whether mathematics, biology or English, is presented in a way that addresses the child’s developmental stage. Each subject is presented through direct experience and is often augmented with art, poetry, music and drama.

Education of the Whole Child

Bilingual Learning Through the Hands, Heart and Head

Learn at Bambujaya Bilingual School

The curriculum at Bambujaya Bilingual School is a richly creative, developmentally appropriate blend of academic studies and all art forms. All subjects are taught in an experiential, artistic and intellectually stimulating way. We offer a comprehensive, fully-coordinated Waldorf-inspired curriculum, focused on honouring childhood and preparing children for a lifetime of learning.

Bambujaya Early Years

Early Childhood Program

Kindergarten

Throughout the early years, children carefully watch and imitate, so it is the optimal time to teach good habits and values that will last a lifetime. Children are interested in what adults are doing and want to have purposeful work themselves – they also need plenty of time to safely explore the world and develop a rich imagination. In later years, children combine their curiosity and compassion to better understand the world and offer solutions to problems.

Bambujaya Elementary School

Lower School

Grades 1 - 5

The elementary years are lively and active at Bambujaya with much of the learning delivered through stories and images, hands-on lessons and the daily creation of Main Lesson books.  Stories are used to teach the alphabet and numbers in Grade 1 through to botany and Greek history in Grade 5. Tales of great deeds, ancient wisdom and cultural traditions combine with stories of animals, geography and mathematical processes to provide a solid academic foundation.

Coming Soon

Middle School

Grades 6 - 8

In Middle School the curriculum evolves to accommodate the learner’s growing desire for integrity. At the same time, the curriculum seeks to keep alive the connection between the adolescent’s soul, and what they learn and create. As they discover their own strengths and talents, we help our Bambujaya learners to integrate their critical thinking, inner resources and imagination, as well as a sense of social responsibility.

“Our highest endeavour must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives.

The need for imagination, a sense of trust, and a feeling of responsibility–these three forces are the very nerve of education.”
