Waldorf PlaySchool

Ages 4.75-7 years.
Our focus is on movement, social graces, emotional sturdiness, caring for Mother Earth’s plants & animals, caring for their friends and themselves. This is a huge task for the very young child and we invite any parent to observe how beautifully this happens here on the farm. As these wee-farmers grow, the become incredibly independent, self-sufficient, inquisitive, co-operative, creative and begin to take initiative.

We hosted a parent/child meet-up yesterday for mommies with their young babies/toddlers (10 months - 20 months). For the 5 mothers who were able to join us for a morning of play, tea and rice porridge, and a farm tour to meet our animal friends, the most often asked question was, "why Waldorf"?

As a parent of three Waldorf-educated children I am so very grateful for having discovered, very early-on, the gifts that are available to young families within a Waldorf Community. Studying the pedigogy behind Waldorf education has had an enourmous impact on my life and has shaped our family in the most amazing and beautiful way. I urge each family to look deeper into the ideals presented by this most profound education....it has made all the difference!

PLAY AGAIN ~ Movie Trailer: Why ‘PLAY’ is the purpose for childhood and being out in nature EVERY SINGLE DAY is vitally important to the health of our children......to the health of our society.

Here are some quotes from the trailer of "Play Again":

"Probably during the day I sent about 3 hundred, to 4 hundred, to 5 hundred text messages."  "My main goal when I get home from school is to get my homework done so I can play games". "When I play video games, it's like I'm in my own little world".

 ....."the landscape of childhood has changed". "We are hard-wired to need nature; we don't do so well when we don’t have that kind of experience". "What are you missing when you're looking at screens?" “We are destroying our ability to reproduce ourselves as a healthy culture”. ”We need to put them [children] in a situation in which they can have a sense of wonder”. “What they will not value, they will not protect, and what they will not protect, they will lose”.

Quite simply, it’s a very small request…..value and protect childhood and let the children PLAY AGAIN!

Read Simplicity Parenting and save your life from the gremlins that just love to "steal your time, roll it up, and smoke it".
