Parent / Guardian Handbook

This Handbook has been prepared to provide our families with information about our school and community. We hope this Handbook will answer many questions and direct you to answers for the rest. By consulting it you will be better informed and feel more at home at Milkwood Steiner School, which we refer to fondly as ‘Milkwood’.

Please take the time to read this Handbook carefully. It will help us to work together and act as an invitation for you to explore your personal connection to the school. A Steiner school differs from other educational institutions in a multitude of ways, and parental involvement is fundamental to achieving the school’s vision.

Listening, creating and performing music are all integral aspects of a balanced music education. Through the students’ involvement in sequential and age appropriate activities, music takes a central position in Waldorf education, studied both as a discrete discipline and most importantly as a vital part of the pedagogy. Exercises for training the musical ear are practiced, providing a solid base for subsequent musical accomplishment and singing and choral work are developed throughout the school years. Children learn the recorder from Class One through to Class Six and individual tuition of a stringed instrument and music notation is taught from Class Three, and by Class Four children participate in orchestral work.
