Michael House a Steiner Waldorf School and Rowans Day Nursery

are situated near Ilkeston, Heanor and Shipley, in their own woodland, adjoining the seven hundred acres of beautiful landscape that make up Shipley Country Park in Derbyshire.

The school, kindergarten and nursery provide a complete education from birth through to 16 years, and is one of over a thousand organisations around the world which educates children according to the principles of Rudolf Steiner.

“Education for Life”

Childhood is the most important time of our lives. The experiences, feelings and education of our early years will greatly colour and shape the adults we go on to become and the part we play in the world.

Our primary task is to provide an environment and education that will allow our pupils to become creative, responsible and confident adults who are more than equipped to face the many challenges of life.

An Assisted Fee Scheme is also available.

Rowans Day Nursery accepts Early Years Vouchers and has openings now.

200 Club Needs Members

The 200 club is a very simple fundraising idea for the school, which has been running for a number of years – this is an initiative to swell its numbers, raise the amount in the pot and therefore raise opportunities for members to recuperate some of their donations!

To join, it costs either £5 per month payable by standing order, or it is payable by cheque for the year in advance (£60).

50% of the money raised goes to the school and the rest of the money (25% for the 1st, 15% for the 2nd and 10% for the 3rd prizes) is shared between the winners of the draw.

If you would like to join, please see Mrs Mistry or Julie Wyer for a form to complete with details.

Call for help with the publicity team!

Can you spare a few hours a month to distribute flyers?

Or fancy writing a blog about our school?

What about making cakes for our next open day?

We need everyone’s help and support so I have put some teams together, headed by the original publicity team. You will shortly be receiving an email with a list of these teams and if you can offer any help, please fill in the with you name, contact details and how you would like to help and send it back to me. I will then put you in contact with the group leader so that we can all get busy with our task. This list can also be found with Mrs Mistry at reception.

Your support will help us so much, so thanks in advance!

Please check the calendar to find out when our next meeting is. Everyone is welcome.
