Titirangi Rudolf Steiner School is located in West Auckland’s Waitakere Ranges on nearly 100 beautiful acres of land stretching down to the sea. It began as a kindergarten initiative in 1986 and now serves children from birth to 18. The school, just minutes out of the artsy village of Titirangi, is a 30-minute drive from Auckland. Another 30 minutes will bring you to a multitude of dramatic west coast beaches, one of which I was hosted for the day by two of the school’s founding teachers. Thank you to John, Suzanne, and Amber for your wonderful hospitality during my visit!
