Rainbow Bridge is an extension of the family experience wherein a child cherishes learning in an environment that truly protects the essence of “CHILDHOOD”.
In following Waldorf curriculum we let children be children – we respect the dignity of the child, we try to understand the child 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 nudge them into doing more good, guide them into the brighter light and mentor them into the curriculum of life.
At Waldorf, we believe that the world is good. Childhood is indeed a wondrous stage and at Rainbow Bridge, an ardent believer and follower of Waldorf, we try and preserve that wonder. There is the order of subtle boundaries that gives scope to inner discipline, there is the gentle nudge of good environment that inclines better and brighter minds, there is the freedom of the child to be him-or-herself leading to a self-learned and self-reliant mind.

In today’s world, along with nature being threatened – it’s the very essence of childhood that needs our ardent protection. Harmony, warmth, love, balance have ideal impact on the health and development of a child and at Rainbow Bridge, that’s exactly what we aim to provide.
We follow the age-dependant leanings and needs – children need to be introduced to everything gradually, gently, softly. Education is not just reading and writing, at Waldorf, we like to educate the heart, heads and hands.
Aims and intend of Rainbow Bridge
In Rainbow bridge HEALTH of a child is of prime importance during the early developing years (0-7) Inner discipline, enthusiasm for learning , faculties for grade school learning are our intentions for the children at the kindergarten
Holistic approach for child care and early education in the developmental stage of child.
We look at Education as a support system for the healthy development of a human child. Early childhood education is primarily based on physical growth, making the surroundings favorable for observation and learning and not instruction and learning. By making the environment safe, warm, protective, caring, soothing and assuring children learn much more than we ever can imagine.
The scope for imagination is widened through free play during which children play with unfinished toys, natural material, wooden blocks and planks which forms the basis for creativity and analytical thinking.
What is needed at what age is researched and the entire curriculum is planned accordingly. Every need of the age is considered and learning happens in a very subtle and natural way. The process of learning is very joyful and non judgmental.
Competition is necessary and very much a part of our lives. It is healthy when it comes at the right time. To protect the child till that time and wait for the readiness to come from within is what we look at in Rainbow Bridge.
We follow a holistic approach towards harmonious physical development, sound emotional development and healthy social interactions in the development of a balanced and healthy human being which is indeed the very basic need of our present times.
The early years, 0 – 7 are very special years and impressions of these last for the entire life. The quality of life depends on these first few years. In Rainbow Bridge we provide special attention to this fact and cultivate healthy habits through our consistent rhythms.
