The Kildare Steiner Waldorf School is a thriving independent, multi-denominational and co-educational school situated in the rolling countryside of County Kildare, bordering on County Wicklow.


The aim of Steiner Waldorf education is to inspire in each student a lifelong love of learning and to enable them to fully develop their unique capacities. It offers a nature-based curriculum tailored to your child’s deepest needs and stage of development and focuses on educating the whole child—balancing academic, artistic and practical learning. There is a strong emphasis on 21st century skills such as independent thinking, self-confidence, resourcefulness and creativity, along with small class sizes, a very positive peer group and inspiring teachers.


In the eighty years since it was first developed, Steiner Waldorf education has become the largest independent educational movement worldwide.


The Kildare Steiner Waldorf School is one of more than 1000 schools and 1600 kindergartens and early childhood centres throughout the world.    


The school is dependent on fees to cover its running costs.
