About our school

Little Yarra is a co-educational, non-denominational Steiner School providing a complete educational program from Preschool to Year 12. As a school we strive to serve the freedom of the human spirit by providing a balanced and disciplined environment in which a full range of academic and creative subjects blend to nourish the whole child.

We work with the developing child through an educational philosophy based on Rudolf Steiner’s deep insights into human nature, to help the child grow and unfold into a creative and responsible individual. One of Rudolf Steiner’s most powerful and important insights was that the child, growing in strength and ability through the years, passes through separate and distinct stages of development. Out of this insight, a curriculum and teaching method that fits the child’s various stages of development is implemented across our school.

Little Yarra Steiner School is situated on Wurundjeri Country. We respectfully acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woiwurrung People of the Kulin Nation as the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we work, learn and play, and pay respect to their Elders past, present and emerging.

We are honoured to share in the continued care of this land, with its wetlands and river, its stones that sleep in the depths of the Earth, its plants and trees that reach for the Sun, and all of the creatures that know it as home. We respectfully acknowledge the ancient and enduring culture of those who have walked this land in the past, which will continue to enrich the lives of our community into the future.
