Waldorf / Steiner Education
Founded in the early 20th century, Waldorf Education is based on the insights, teachings and principles of education outlined by the world renowned educator, artist, philosopher, social reformer and spiritual scientist Rudolf Steiner. The principles of Waldorf Education evolve from an understanding of human development that address the needs of the growing child.

The work of Rudolf Steiner is one of the main inspirations for the formation of CHC, and since 2011, the core principles of Waldorf education influence most of the activities and projects that CHC has engaged in.
