Welcome

Gift your child a love for learning.
We warmly invite you to visit our school for an introductory chat with our staff. 

Wild Cherry School is a Waldorf/Steiner school K-6 based in Bairnsdale, commercial capital of East Gippsland and gateway to the Gippsland Lakes, Wilderness Coast and High Country. The perfect place for a sea change.

Our purpose is to nurture the whole child through a holistic education that encourages curiosity, creativity, bold questioning, positive social consciousness and a connection to the natural world.

Our teachers instil a love for learning with a play-based early years focus followed by a rich and integrated program that balances academic (the three Rs: reading, writing, arithmetic), artistic, and practical experiences. Music, handcraft, sport, eurythmy, and French complement the academic curriculum. Emphasis is on creating a safe, nurturing, and sensory-rich learning environment.

Call us on 03 5152 1966 now to book your school tour or send us an email at admin@wildcherry.vic.edu.au. We would love to hear from you.

Our office is open during school terms Mon – Fri 8.30am – 3.30pm.
