Yallingup Steiner School
A long-standing relationship between the school community and the local Wadandi people is held dear by our school. The blessing of the Kindergarten as “Coorlingamia” (meaning ‘children’s house’) by the elders of the Wadandi at the beginning of our journey is in recognition of this relationship. This rich collaborative cultural exchange continues to this day.
Yallingup Steiner School began its journey from a parent group that shared a common vision to educate their children in a more creative way.
In 1986 a group of people from the Yallingup area, interested in natural childbirth, joined together with the regional midwife to begin ante-natal classes. As time went on, it became clear that these same people shared a common interest in exploring an innovative and holistic approach to their children’s early education.
One of the members was involved in using Rudolf Steiner’s biodynamic farming methods and was aware of the worldwide network of schools following Steiner’s principles of education.
