An open day is held on the last Monday of July and the last Monday of October at 4.30pm where prospective parents are able to meet the kindergarten teacher, the Principal(s) and other members of the College of Teachers, view student work and become acquainted with the philosophy of Steiner Education and the particulars of the Newcastle Waldorf School. A personal interview, conducted by a representative of the College of Teachers will be arranged for parents wishing to pursue enrolment.
Applications for enrolment at other times throughout the year can be made by contacting the school office. If there is a place in the class the class teacher/guardian will arrange a time for a face-to-face interview to discuss the potential enrolment.
All applications are processed in order of receipt but consideration is given to the applicant’s support for the ethos of the school, siblings already attending the school and the applicant having attended another Steiner School.
The School does not operate a waiting list. If classes are full, applicants are asked to contact the School regularly throughout the year.
Once enrolled, students are expected to uphold the school’s ethos and comply with the school’s code of conduct as described in the Handbook to maintain their enrolment.
