A Steiner School Education in Alice Springs
Our Early Childhood, Primary and Middle School programs balance cognitive and emotional intelligence with physical activity, and each subject integrates academic work with fine and practical arts. This multidimensional approach to education inspires students to embrace school and become lifelong learners.
What our community has to say
Our son started in ‘Ruby Saltbush’ Preschool at The Alice Springs Steiner School and is now in Class 1. Over the past three years he has gained many new skills and we have watched his confidence soar. The teachers are so considerate, caring, and supportive. They really take the time to get to know each child and their family. We are so grateful to be part of this wonderful school community.
We have two daughters enrolled at The Alice Springs Steiner School and we’ve had a very positive experience at the school. Situated in a beautiful location beneath the MacDonnell ranges, the school itself provides a fantastic environment for children to learn, play and grow. Our girls absolutely love going to school there and have made many good friends as well as bonding with their teachers. They have developed a genuine curiosity about nature and the world around them, as well as passions for craft and creative story telling. We would highly recommend the school to other families in Alice looking for a holistic, nurturing environment for their children.
The Alice Springs Steiner School should be the first school you consider in town. Our children have all had an incredible experience. One of the strongest recommendations for the school is that the kids are excited to go back to school after breaks. They love learning and the school has helped foster and encourage that. Our 4 kids have attended Billy Button all the way through year 8. The teachers are skilled, dedicated, and care deeply about the kids. The education is top quality, and the curriculum is promoting flourishing for each child. I wholeheartedly encourage you to come see what the school is all about.
We have been delighted by our daughter’s experiences at The Alice Springs Steiner School to date. She has been supported to be herself, and to learn and grow with her peers with respect, kindness, and a wonderful sense of curiosity. The grounds of the school provide magical spaces for children to explore and imagine, and the gentle rhythms to the day are a breath of fresh air in a world that is increasingly moving at high speed. This school encourages a sense of wonder in the world and mother nature that is priceless for our children.
Our schooling experience at the Alice Springs Steiner School has been magical from day one in Ruby Saltbush. The warmth and love felt for my children and myself is like love from family. The community feeling that is achieved through helping hands and colourful spirit is such a treasured feeling that I am so grateful to have. The education that both my children have received is of a very high standard, they are thoughtful, deep thinking and confident young ladies that in my opinion have gained these attributes from such a wonderful supportive school.
