There are over two thousand Steiner-Waldorf early years centres worldwide, and the number keeps on growing. What are the principles and characteristics of Waldorf kindergartens, and how can they adapt to the new challenges the twenty-first century brings? This book of articles by Waldorf experts is a valuable overview of Waldorf early years education today. It discusses the vision behind Waldorf kindergartens, as well as the increasing number of childcare facilities for the under threes, and the basics of child development. It looks in detail at contemporary practice, from daily rhythms and nutrition to singing, eurythmy, working with parents and media and technology. The contributors are experienced Waldorf teachers and educators in Germany, and include editors Marie-Luise Compani and Peter Lang, Freya Jaffke, Birgit Krohmer, Andreas Neider, Claudia McKeen, Angelika Prange, Jacqueline Walter-Baumgartner, Elisabeth Goeebel, Michael Kassner, and Claudia Grah-Wittich. This is both a useful introduction for parents and an informative review for Waldorf professionals.
