Quote:   Do you know for a fact she'd move back a grade at the Waldorf school? If so, can you share the reason(s)? That hasn't been what I've seen at our Waldorf school, so I'm just curious...

I know this is an old thread, but I wanted to see if anyone has any input?? I am finally getting to the place where I can attend a Waldorf-related training beyond my current education and would like more testimonials about Sophia's Hearth and Lifeways. THANKS!!
