Most children settle very quickly with care from the class teacher who ensures that they have the support from the class and also that they have the equipment they need and are given the time they need to adapt to the changes they experience in the learning environment. The standards in Steiner schools are high and the breadth of subjects covered by the Steiner curriculum is extensive and it can take time to adjust to this. However, usually the child will quickly feel at ease and feel a sense of relief at the absence of the pressures of a hurried and assessment driven learning environment. This in itself creates a positive relationship to the new learning environment.
