Media & Technology Philosophy

Waldorf education empowers the development of imagination and memory and the ability to entertain oneself, especially in the younger grades.

We know that most families have some media as part of the home experience and we encourage families to significantly limit or discontinue exposure to television, movies, video games, computers and other entertainment media. Many families choose Waldorf education because they want a low-technology environment for their children.

We acknowledge that this can be a difficult transition, especially if the student has had a lot of media interaction prior to Waldorf school attendance. We support our families in making this transition, and are here to help you create solutions that will work in your home.
