I remember researching different educational schools of thought (pun intended) when my daughter was very young because I wanted to give her something different, something more meaningful than traditional public school. I eventually settled on Waldorf, much to the confusion of my public high school parents and, quite frankly, her father. I have shared the tenants, the studies, and the gentle beauty of it all, but I did not have anyone on board until I shared the curriculum. Waldorf exposes our littles to more than books, but also to music, the earth, and their own capacity for creation. No where is this more apparent than in Waldorf handwork classes.
