DUBLIN STEINER SCHOOL WAS FOUNDED BY PARENTS SEEKING A DIFFERENT EDUCATIONAL APPROACH.
Our story began in 2009, when our kindergarten was established in one room of our historic building at 92 Meath Street. This characterful Georgian building was the home of Dublin's oldest creche, known as the Liberty Creche, which first opened in 1893 to provide care for the children of working mothers, many of whom were street traders in the Liberties. It has been in continuous use as a childcare facility ever since.
In 2017, with demand for our kindergarten services rocketing, four families made the decision to found a primary school and seek a fuller Waldorf education for their children. At the time, Dublin was unusual among European capitals in not having a dedicated Waldorf school.
Our student numbers have increased every year since, and we currently have 80 children from ages 3 through 12, with a waiting list to enter the school at kindergarten level. Children at Dublin Steiner School are able to enjoy all the benefits of the Waldorf ethos in the heart of our diverse inner-city community, and with access to all the rich cultural amenities - from theatre to galleries to historical monuments - that the capital has to offer.
