How We Teach?

Uday Waldorf Inspired School, serving students from pre-K through grade five, and growing by a class every year, offers a learning environment that is a thoughtful and progressive alternative. With a supportive community of faculty, staff and parents, we’re able to meet students where they are developmentally, intellectually and emotionally. While what we teach is critical to our goals, it is how we teach that truly sets us apart.

Our educational approach is founded on the time-tested insights into learning that are applied by Waldorf schools around the world. Much current thinking in the education field supports what Waldorf schools have been doing for nearly a century — experiential learning, place-based learning and kinesthetic learning, to name just a few techniques. We apply these insights, making every lesson active and engaging. The successful results are seen in our highly imaginative, self-motivated students, who approach learning with curiosity, discipline and enthusiasm.

Our teaching method

We value an adaptive approach to Waldorf, in which new ideas, practices, and styles are incorporated to support and enrich the experience of each child. From early childhood programming through the completion of school curriculum, our students are met with openness to possibility, given time to develop resilience, and taught skills to turn challenges into opportunities.

Our pedagogy is reflective and responsive to the demands and expectations of today’s world while maintaining our core vision—to weave together the arts, academics, and movement with a reverence for the developing child.

Teachers, staff, volunteers and didis

At Uday, we understand that teaching a child is a tremendous responsibility and a demanding task, for teaching is not simply a job, it is a calling. A true teacher meets the children where they are at their stage of development rather than forcing them to conform and adapt to a predetermined picture of what they should be. Becoming a Waldorf teacher requires a willingness to learn–and so to teach–in an entirely new way. Rather than teaching students familiar answers, a Waldorf educator teaches them to ask unfamiliar questions. Uday invests significantly on teacher’s continuous learning and training to enable teachers to develop ever deeper insights into the individual child and the overarching picture of child development.
