Year One : two days per week
Year one is the beginning of formal schooling marked by children's new interest in learning, inspired by the awakening abilities of memory and thinking.
Steiner Education meets the student's innate curiosity and desire to grow with a rich multisensory experience. Students sculpt, draw, move, listen, imagine and sound out - all ways to engage different learning styles.
The students and teacher build the foundation for an ever-deepening relationship while forming a socially cohesive group during this special year of "beginnings".
The teacher uses movement, rhythm and rhyme as a key instructional tool.

Writing: introduction to the alphabet

counting to 100,
