Education for the world of tomorrow

Michael Oak Waldorf School seeks to awaken the whole child towards creative responsibility, developing confident, balanced individuals empowered to work with the challenges of today and tomorrow.

Michael Oak is a diverse coeducational school from Playgroup to Matric. It is one of 16 Waldorf Schools in South Africa and more than 1000 worldwide. Established in 1962, Michael Oak has around 430 pupils at Nursery, Primary and High school levels situated on our campus in the heart of Kenilworth, Cape Town.‚Äč 

Beginning in the Nursery, in a welcoming and beautiful environment, the children’s days are filled with artistic and practical work, imaginative play, fairy tales, music, circle games and healthy outdoor play. Although there is no formal intellectual work at this stage, the children acquire numerous skills that provide a firm foundation for on-going development.

The Primary School and High School draw on an internationally successful Waldorf curriculum designed to meet the child’s emotional, spiritual and intellectual needs at each age. Based on a profound understanding of human nature, the curriculum covers all the required subjects and is adapted to our African context.
