About Kindlehill

Kindlehill School offers a contemporary and innovative Steiner education from Kindergarten to Year 12 in Wentworth Falls, the Blue Mountains, NSW. We are a small school and have been in operation since 2000. We are renowned for providing an education that is reverent and nurturing in Kindergarten, productive and values based in Primary School, and stimulating and engaging in the junior High School where students make meaningful connections between classroom learning and the world around them. This year we began a Senior School program that is an innovative alternative to the HSC, with an ecological and community engagement focus. Kindlehill School is registered from K – 12 with NESA and meets its educational outcomes and requirements.

Kindlehill is committed to providing a child safe environment where children and young people are safe and feel safe, and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives. Particular attention is given to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children and children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, as well as the wellbeing of children with a disability.
