Welcome to Rainbow Bridge a Waldorf Early Child Care Center in Navi Mumbai

Rainbow Bridge, a center that came into existence in the year 2012, is based on the educational philosophy of Rudolf Steiner, an Austrian philosopher and the founder of Anthroposophy.

 

Our approach towards children is that of reverence and warmth – children are tender beings; they sponge up everything around themselves – the good and the bad – with equal fervor. The mantle, heavy as it may be, lies on us to guide them into the brighter light and mentor them into the curriculum of life.

 

We work together, along with parents, to deepen our understanding of the young child and truthfully work towards creating an environment both at home and school to nourish and protect the very essence of “CHILDHOOD,” which is the true Being of an ‘Individual’.

 

We are part of a larger community of individuals, groups and associations, both nationally and internationally who are working with this philosophy of Waldorf Early Childhood Education of Rudolf Steiner.

“You cannot be an educator or a teacher without relating to children with full insight. Their urge to imitate has been transformed into a receptivity based on a natural and uncontested relationship of authority, and you must take this into account in the broadest possible sense.” ~ Rudolf Steiner

Testimonials

Rima & Arun Pundir

When Adhiraaj, my son, turned two, Arun and I being the typical parents we are, started wringing our hands about which school to send him to. Horror stories in the newspaper and the general chaos we saw in playschools we visited really disturbed us - and Aadi too was a little sensitive to noises and screams. So when Rainbow Bridge was born, we heaved a sigh of relief. A gentle, nurturing environment and happy children - the ideal of a school that we had in mind, coupled with the logical and caring methodology of Waldorf - there has to be a pot of gold at this end of this Rainbow!--

Rainbow bridge is a Waldorf nursery school. We are satisfied with it for comfortable environment and the warm atmosphere in the classroom. The toys are natural and handmade. All the teachers are very nice and patient. They emphasize the imagination and creativity of children, and pay attention to the child's interest to find and cultivate. Our girl adapted to this nursery school soon, and she likes her experience in the school very much. As parents, we also had much training and learned much about pre-school education form this school. We feel very lucky to have the chance to let my daughter go to Waldorf school in India.

Lamiya and Vikram Manghnani, Parents of Tara

We are truly blessed as a family to have been introduced to the Rainbow Bridge kindergarten. It has been over 3. 5 years since this wonderful association and the bonding has only strengthened. Through RB we have reflected on the nuances of Waldorf education and Anthroposophy, which has immensely helped in imparting the right education to our daughter as well bringing about awareness as eternal carers for the child. Childhood should be nurtured and not just lived.

This has been explicably explained to us as parents and we in turn have seen this in our children. Right from the teachers, caregivers, and fellow parents to the daily rhythm, festivals and the environment, the entirety of the education at RB has been fulfilling and incredibly gratifying. I truly wish I too would have experienced this kind of learning and nurturing in my early years. But I’m glad my Taara is fortunate enough to have experienced it. Thank you and God bless!

I know its very long but i cant stop myself :-))))

The importance ...
