* Please note: It is a deliberate policy of our Academy to offer children gradually increasing hours at school through Classes I – III rather than full days, as followed by many schools.
Why is full-time school introduced gradually?
Children are introduced gradually to a full day at school on the grounds that the learning experience will be tiring for young children and that the benefits of the Steiner curriculum are maximized when young children have sufficient time to play. Parents of young children will be asked to sign a home/school agreement that states that they understand and support this view.
