This is an essential introduction to the practice of Rudolf Steiner's ideas in education.

They discuss the practical aspects of teaching, the celebration of seasonal festivals, the stages of child development, early education, later years, environmental education, and much more.

Waldorf Education is one of the best and most accessible introductions to this unique and effective form of education. It is an ideal gift for parents who are exploring alternative methods of education for their children.

Reviews

'This is an excellent book, not only informative but very readable and the text is further helped by the colourful illustrations. Shows how children's artistic and practical skills can be developed, along with their social and emotional development.'
