The expansion of the Port Macquarie Steiner School is gaining momentum with a major fundraiser held on Friday, September 13.
The money raised will go towards a permanent site for the school.
The fundraiser at Little Fish Cafe marked 100 years of Steiner education in the world.
Steiner education is based on the educational philosophy of Rudolph Steiner.
The cultivation of imagination and creativity is key.
Principal of the Port Macquarie Steiner School Kristy Barry said the school had established a building fund to raise money for a permanent location.
"We are at the point of the school where we are looking forward to that next step of finding a permanent site for the school and to do that will involve a lot of investment," Ms Barry said.
The school has been operating out of an old church in Table Street for the last 18 months.
The school currently has 21 students but will be a capacity next year with 32 students.
"We have seen a lot of interest in the school," Ms Barry said.
"There is a lot of interest from families in Steiner Schools in Melbourne and Sydney and love it but want to get out of a busy place like that and move to a coastal town like Port Macquarie."
Ms Barry said she didn't go to a Steiner School but her now 13-year-old son attended one in his younger years.
"I really wanted to find a place, an education setting that really honoured the spirit of my child," she said.
"I didn't want my child be not seen."
Ms Barry said Steiner education is "child-centred education that really looks at the development of the child and the human being".
"We really emphasize heartfelt relationships in the school," she said.
"We value play, it is an integral part of learning and we are also very connected to nature and the seasons.
"A lot of their learning is through oral storytelling and it is really amazing starting to work more closely with our First Nations people."
Robyn Falzon's two children go to the Steiner School in Port Macquarie.
"My hope is that my children find their potential, that they develop a love of learning and a sense of awe about the world and pursue that," she said.
"It could mean a practical skill, it could mean an intellectual thing.
"That they find a love of life and I think Steiner education really encourages that."
