Description

Helle Heckmann describes a delightful Danish Waldorf childcare facility for children ages 1-7.

Nøkken is a wonderful example of a healthy child-care facility which accepts children from the age of one. This extended case-study explores what places like Nøkkenfor can for children and their families.

It is practical through, covering issues of staff relations, number of children, the rhythm of the day, parent relations, seasonal celebrations and birthdays, and financing the centre. Throughout, the Steiner-Waldorf principles underpinning the kindergarten shine through.
