Awaken, nurture, thrive.
At Freshwater Creek Steiner School, we believe children thrive when they learn in a genuinely nurturing environment.
To prepare children for the future, we believe we must protect their imagination, curiosity and willingness to give things a go.
Freshwater Creek Steiner School is one of over 50 Steiner Schools in Australia and offers playgroup, kinder, and primary school on a beautiful rural campus.
The school is located just 15 minutes from Geelong and 10 minutes from Torquay, along Anglesea Road.
As part of the world’s largest independent education movement and with a nationally accredited curriculum, Freshwater Creek Steiner School is the trusted alternative to mainstream education on the Surf Coast.
Our unique curriculum is designed to engage the interests and abilities of the growing child, meeting their needs at each stage of development.
Bounded by abundant wetland and farmland, the children’s learning and play is enriched by the world of nature.
We view the arts as a vital key to engaging with learning, and the development of social, academic, and physical skills.
Steiner teachers integrate music, movement, drama, craft work, modelling, woodwork, and other skills to engage the children in literacy, mathematics, history, geography, and science.
Weaving real and creative experience through the content of a subject, enlivens the student’s curiosity, and interest in gaining a deeper level of understanding.
In Class 3, children participate in a year-long farming program at the biodynamic farm adjoining the school. Contributing to farm work, gardening, and cooking activities demonstrates the value of purposeful work and develops the child’s sense of capability and confidence.
Excursions, camps, sport activities and community events such as seasonal festivals all form part of the student’s school and community experience.
FWCSS provides a creative education of the highest quality, supporting the children to develop clarity of thinking, sensitivity of feeling and strength of will.
We warmly invite you to explore our school. Tours are held regularly and can be booked via the school’s website at fwcss.vic.edu.au
