Steiner Education 1919 – 2019

The importance of Creativity in education.   Sir Ken Robinson

“Our Education systems don’t need a change. They need a revolution to allow creativity to thrive… Education reform begins by accepting that creativity is as important as Literacy and Numeracy.”

Sir Ken Robinson Professor Emeritus-University of Warwick, UK. In his address to the Australia Council’s symposium on National Education & the Arts. Sept 2005

The place of creativity in Steiner Education

  • An artistic approach to learning permeates the Steiner curriculum and methodology at all levels and across all subject areas.
  • Each child is seen as an artist, and as an individual with creative ability, which can be used in adult life to awaken new ideas, new solutions, new modes of thought and levels of consciousness.
