Red River is a holistic setting that is based on the work of Rudolph Steiner, his insights and his understanding of child development. We offer Waldorf classes for children aged 3 - 14 years on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during term time.   Red River sits in the grounds of the beautiful Scorrier Estate near Redruth in Cornwall. We have six acres of field and woodland that surround us in nature all year round.   Our Kindergarten aims to provide a wholesome and harmonious environment where mixed age groups of 3 to 6 year old children can develop safely and joyfully. Red River Kindergarten uses Waldorf principles and through these principles addresses all the seven areas of learning in accordance with the EYFS. 
Each child will be assigned a 'key person' from the staff who will undertake sensitive observational assessments in order to plan to meet a child's individual needs.

The Kindergarten guardians strive to build a bridge between home and school to form a connection to each child’s family. Children of this age learn through imitating the world around them. Our aim is to provide an example worthy of imitation and to nurture the child’s imagination with simple but beautiful materials for creative play. Songs, poems, stories and puppet plays develop children’s language skills and steep them in rich cultural traditions. There are daily and weekly rhythms that include baking, painting and seasonal crafts. The Kindergarten also has its own secluded garden which the children have free flow access to.   Classes for children aged 7 - 14 years are also based on the Waldorf curriculum and include the traditional main lesson each morning. Waldorf pupils are supported to reach their highest potential in all areas of their being. The education is not designed to instil knowledge to get them through a test to take them to the next level. It is about encouraging children to meet the world with an open heart a creative and enquiring mind, meeting each child where they are now and supporting them to be where they could be. ​
