The following chart is intended to provide a guide for parents to see which class their child might be in and the equivalent year in mainstream schools.

As in many of the newer Steiner Schools, the class sizes are relatively small and a combined-class system is in operation. Classes vary in size with the pioneering classes at the front of the school naturally being smaller and the largest class size comprising 20 children.
