About Casuarina School

Situated on the sub-tropical Mid-North Coast, on the edge of beautiful bushland in the beachside city of Coffs Harbour, Casuarina Steiner School offers a unique education for children aged 12 months to 12 years.

Casuarina Steiner School provides an education based on a balanced approach to learning. Alongside a very high standard of academic education, our curriculum places great importance on educating the head, heart and hands, thereby educating the whole person intellectually, artistically, socially and morally to develop each student’s innate self-discipline and strength of body and will. Our next generation will need to be effective problem solvers, be adventurous to thrive in a changing world, face moral and ethical challenges that lie ahead and be creative to bring out the beauty in the world and themselves.

Based on the Steiner principles, we offer a nurturing environment to address children’s changing needs and capabilities at each stage of their development. Our methods of teaching ensure deep and rounded learning.

Our Mission 

Casuarina Steiner School is committed to nurturing the children in the spiritual, artistic and intellectual environment of Steiner Education.

We engage children by educating the head, heart and hands to achieve harmony in all three as the foundation for balanced, responsible and free human beings.

We enable children to be innovative and guide them towards self-responsibility while being mindful of the rights of others.
