What is Waldorf Homeschool Curriculum?

Waldorf is a holistic approach that follows the development of your child. The method was founded by Austrian scholar and theologist Rudolf Steiner. Waldorf helps unfold the whole child, head, heart, and hands.

Waldorf Essentials currently offers curriculum and support from early childhood through seventh grade. We also offer support through high school.

We also offer Life Essentials© coaching. We work with Waldorf and non Waldorf families to help them reach their fullest potential in their home life, business life and marriage.
