Waldorf & Spirituality

The Waldorf Curriculum for children actually does not teach Anthroposophy. However, Waldorf School’s in general are either Christian, Jewish, Muslim or very broadly spiritually based. Each day begins with a prayer and ends with a parting prayer. Each meal begins with a prayer and the notion of “God” is prevalent in the Waldorf school. The Waldorf curriculum stresses the importance of spirituality in every day life. One does not have to be of a particular faith as the Waldorf schools traditionally celebrate according to the faith’s of their students. However, an atheist may not feel at ease in a Waldorf School setting.

Traditional Waldorf Schools come in all varieties. There are Christian schools , Jewish Schools and even Islamic Waldorf Schools. There are also schools which are more pagan or secular in nature.
