Teaching our children to play and create, to sing and to dance, math, science and and humanities at large—all in the right time—means that our children are learning with more depth how to make a better world and a better future.
Waldorf schools take a radically different approach to teaching science. This phenomenological, or “observational” approach to scientific studies allows students to participate in the entire process, observing each step with fresh eyes and an open mind.
Within the peace and the beauty of a Waldorf early childhood education classroom is a deep academic undercurrent. While children play in their surroundings, neurological foundations are laid for future success in mathematics and science.
On average, 20% of a child’s week is spent in their classroom learning environment. And yet many times these environments are cluttered and sterile—a space replete with distraction rather than calm and peace.
