Hi All,

I am planning to join my  child in a waldorf school. Before finalizing on that , would like to know if any of the parents in this forum have joined their kids in a waldorf school and how was the teaching methodology and the child growth.

Especially would like to know about Abhaya or Diksha waldorf schools..

 After disucssing with management understood that till 6th grade they will not be giving much stress to the academics part and they will be concentrating on teaching life skills.from 7th onwards they will be teached the CBSE syllabus. so will the  child be able to pick up and gain momentum at that point.. how it works?

Any feedback is welcome.

Hi Veerav,

Waldorf is a wonderful curriculum. My friend's daughter is studying in Abhaya. Both the schools are very good, the only difference being Diksha is an established school and Abhaya is a new one.

The children can cope up with CBSE later.

Regards

Shailaja

I got to know about waldorf from my friend. her kids go to Sloka. like what others were saying, there is'nt much stree till grade 2 or so. But she even said one point that if for any reason you want to change the school to no waldorf or non montessori, then you will have to wait till grade 4 if you want to put your child in regular CBSE/ICSE curriculum.
You can know this better from the teachers ..

Hi Ritu,

We recently visited Prerana for admissions to LKG and we have a mixed review to share. The following is what I posted on another discussion.
*******
Visited the school recently for admission to PP1/Lower KG. Spoke to head counsellor who looked well qualified, senior and impressive - was able to answer all questions very well.

I am concerned about the fees though. Apart from tuition fees of 90k per year, there's a 35k material fee (?) and a very steep admission fees of 45k. This fees doesn't include transport or food. They didn't bring up food charges, so I assume parents need to handle that themselves. They were unclear about transport fees, but going by experience with other schools, I expect it to be no less than 30k for a distance of 10km.

They were happy to take admissions right now even though there's a directive from education minister to hold off on any new admissions.

For all their talk of alternative teaching methodology, they didn't seem to be different from any other school and just seem as money minded as others. Underwhelmed.
