News from Nova Institute

This will be the last year of the Nova Institute.

Twenty-two years ago we began our work with the idea of building a bridge connecting Waldorf schools with the mainstream educational community so that the fundamental principles of an innovative, spiritually-based education could serve a greater number of teachers and parents.


Nova Institute

Courage To Teach
Child On Father's Shoulder

…seeks to bring  fresh insights into parent and teacher education through a deeper understanding of children.

This understanding is based on a comprehensive view of human development, focusing on a child's need to engage in three distinct ways: actively, emotionally, and thoughtfully.

When parents and teachers help children to
develop good habits of
hand, heart, and mind,

young people become well-rounded individuals who can embrace life, love to learn, and have an abiding concern for their fellow human beings and for the Earth.
