At the Acorn School of Charleston, we are inspired by the principles of Waldorf Education. Ms. Christi, our teacher, and Dr. Stevens, our Director have over fifty years of experience as Waldorf teachers. What makes our approach so successful? We honor the childhood years. We create a classroom environment that is worthy of imitation. We allow the children to engage in creative play as well as a structured series of practical activities. Waldorf Education has been in the United States since 1928 and this play-based experiential learning method is a proven approach that children love. This love of school in the earliest years can lead to a life-long love of learning. 

"Waldorf taught me how to think for myself, to be accountable for my actions, to be a good listener, and to be sensitive to the needs of others. It also helped me to focus on the underlying importance of beliefs, and values that are the foundation of good leadership."
