The Karl Schubert Kindergarten is a special education kindergarten. Our approach is guided by Rudolf Steiner's educational theory and conception of man. In this view, the spiritual core—the individuality of the human being—can never be sick. Disorders, handicaps, and illnesses occur in the spiritual (thinking, feeling, acting) and physical areas. We want to help children and adolescents in need of soul care to master their very special life’s work.
Our kindergarten is co-financed by City of Vienna Child Care Department (MA 10) and the Vienna Social Fund. The additional tuition fee (covering meals and therapies) is income-adjusted. Additional membership fees and donations are required in order to provide for the maintenance and the necessary expansion of our kindergarten.
How It All Began
Karl Schubert was born on 25 November 1889 in Vienna (in the “House of the Green Snake,” Josefstädter Strasse 11). Of Jewish origin on his mother's side, he was baptized Catholic ...
Rudolf Steiner (1861-1926) had his first encounter with disability as a child: His brother Gustav, born 1866 in Pottschach, was deaf. His father managed a station there along the Semmering Railway.
freiRaum23 at the Karl Schubert School is an association for the promotion of culture, integration, and movement in Vienna’s 23rd District. Culture that deserves to be called such gets us moving not only mentally and spiritually, but also physically. It changes, stimulates, enlivens, and expands us, our perspectives, and our possibilities.
