Our History

From humble beginnings, the Central Coast Steiner School began its journey in 1995. A mudbrick cottage housed a kindergarten of eight children and Patricia Dodman, a dedicated Steiner teacher with a dream to bring Steiner education to the NSW Central Coast. Our journey has seen the school move from that house in Holgate to the Ourimbah campus of Newcastle University and then to North Gosford. Finally in 2006, we moved into our permanent home– seven acres of rural land in beautiful Fountaindale.

As time has passed, we have seen great changes to the open pastures we settled into. Our facilities have expanded extensively over the past sixteen years with our new multi-purpose building due for completion mid 2022. This is a generous space with three flexible classrooms and an auditorium to seat 180 people.

Behind the physical changes are years of tireless effort from an evolving community of dedicated staff members and committed parents, always working to build on that original vision of offering Steiner education to the NSW Central Coast.
