Berkeley Rose School is inspired by Waldorf education, developed by Rudolf Steiner. The teachings and philosophy take a complete approach to learning—“head, heart, and hands”—and address each child as an individual with innate talents and abilities.
Founded in 2008 Berkeley Rose School established an urban East Bay presence for Waldorf education. This developing Waldorf school brings the ideals of deep learning, independent inquiry, confidence and well-roundedness to students from a campus in the heart of Berkeley.
Berkeley Rose School started as a six student kindergarten in the living room of one of the founding parents. Seven years later we’ve grown to a thriving school with a preschool, two kindergartens, and three grades.
The vision for Berkeley Rose has always been to offer children a school that can be their home from preschool through 8th grade: to build a school that provides community for families for a decade or more as their children move through the grades.
