Polaris School and Centre, opened its doors in the fall of 2018. Based on the principals of Rudolf Steiner, we offer a holistic education which meets to the needs of the whole child – head, heart and hands.
Our unique financial model welcomes everyone who wishes to attend, and strives to resolve financial barriers for families, teachers and staff. Consciously acknowledging every relationship, we create a community of mutually supportive members, all bringing their own needs and gifts in support of the whole school. This model is intimately connected with the desire to cultivate a vibrant and diverse community which is involved and supports the school. We welcome you to become a part of this community.
Donations directly support lower income families in need of assistance. Without additional financial support these families would be unable to attend. Your generous donation, helps ensure that these children and others receive an education that prepares them for life. The foundation for all of our programs is based on stages of child development, teachers see each student as a unique individual, whose gifts are respected and cultivated through experiences of self, knowledge and community, giving them the tools to meet a quickly changing world. The allowance for wonder and discovery, rather than rushing and testing, allows the young person to develop many capacities in their inner life.
These are all seeds for a life-long love of learning, building a foundation of self-confidence, resilience, creativity, and respect for oneself, others and the natural world around them.
