At Bristol Steiner School we believe that: * Education is a journey, not a race. * Play is the serious work of early childhood. * Learning takes place with hands, heart and head. * By protecting the right to childhood we are creating abilities for life.

“We should not be asking, what does a person need to know or be able to do in order to fit into the existing social order? Instead we should ask: what lives in each human being and how can this be developed? Only then will it be possible to direct the new qualities of each emerging generation into society. Society will then become what young people, as whole human beings, make out of existing social conditions. The new generation should not simply be made to become what present society wants it to be”
Rudolf Steiner.
