Kilkenny Steiner School provides Steiner Education for children from 3-12. Toddler groups and Kindergarten are offered in Ballyhall, a charitable Community Kindergarten. Class 1-6 are offered in Ballytobin. It provides a beautiful setting for the school environment: a working community that gives an added dimension to the classes and the inclusive nature supporting a holistic picture. We welcome children of all abilities and from all faiths and backgrounds. The priority of the Steiner ethos is to provide an unhurried and creative learning environment where children can find joy in learning and experience the richness of childhood rather than early specialisation.

Ballyhall Kindergarten, the school's umbrella organisation and nearby KCAT have had ESC volunteers for many years, mostly young adults from different European countries. During their time in Kindergarten they learned a lot about themselves, the innovative way the Steiner Curriculum looks at learning and development which inspired a few to continue in this direction. They brought enthusiasm,ideas and valuable support. Our setting is one of threefold learning a style of non-formal learning which links very specifically to the ESC program. Our Educational Goals are to

To recognise the inner development of the child and seek to nourish him/her with appropriate experiences at each stage, through a wide ranging curriculum.
To foster the child’s experience of rhythm through a balance of artistic, practical and intellectual work in the day, and the celebration of the seasons during the year.
To treat all subjects as inter-dependent, so that languages, science, art and craft weave a meaningful whole, with the human being at the centre.
To facilitate the unfolding of, support the challenges of and recognise the gifts of each emerging individual.

The close connection with KCAT & Ballyhall Kindergarten (ESC coordinator, tutors and kindergarten teachers) brings experience of over 10 years now and want to develop this experience with this application with a focus on creative ways to document and disseminate innovative curricula.
