Cambridge Steiner School is currently funded through the financial contributions of the families attending the school. This system affords the teachers professional freedom to meet the needs of their classes and carry responsibility for their work. Steiner schools abroad (New Zealand, Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, to name but a few) are funded by the government and in this country, the Hereford Steiner School, among others, has been granted state funding recently. While your 3 and 4-year-old children may be eligible for Early Years Funding (EYF) in the kindergarten, the school is open to alternative funding methods including becoming a state-funded free school.
