Further information

Umbrella organisation

The Federation of Rudolf Steiner Waldorf Schools in New Zealand Incorporated (1988) represents the interests of its licensed kindergarten and day nursery members at a national level. The federation also represents Steiner schools and playgroups. There are no best practice expressions or standards for member services as the Steiner movement values self-determination. However, the movement wants to ensure the integrity of the ‘Steiner’ and ‘Waldorf’ names in New Zealand, and is looking at ways to achieve this.

Twenty-one of the 25 services included in the study for this monograph were members of The Federation of Rudolf Steiner Waldorf Schools in New Zealand and four were not members.
