Early 2007, at the enrollment for the school year 2007-2008, the 'demand'
largely exceeded the 'supply'. Some parents, grandparents and teachers
then have taken the initiative to set up a new kindergarten, based on
Waldorf education in Borgerhout.
It turned out to be a big adventure to put such a dream into reality in
next to no time. Yet this close-knit group of enthusiasts did it: they
found a suitable building, well located and (provided a thorough facelift)
with a great atmosphere. They worked like mad and achieved to open up
the first kindergarden class in the new school on september 2007.

The intention is to grow from this class for toddlers between 2,5 –
6 years old to a complete primary school, well embeded in the cosmopolitan
neighbourhood and adjusted to the needs and the challenges of today's
cultural mix. The initiators want to provide the best education for kids
from all sections of the population, corresponding the wish of the founder
of this pedagogy: Rudolf Steiner.
