Our oldest just turned 3, so we're only up to preschool.. but one of the options that we're considering is the local Waldorf school. They have a 3/4 preschool and then continue through grade 8. I have been attending Waldorf parent-tot programs for several years, and love many aspects of the approach. DH is concerned, however, that our DD might be bored there (i.e. too much unstructured time). The other school that we're considering is Reggio-inspired, so quite different in approach. I do like the fact that Waldorf places such a high priority on the development of creative/imaginary play, and feel that Reggio might not be as conducive to that. Then again, the focus on group explorations / group learning in Reggio has some appeal. Can anyone with kids in a Waldorf pre-K/K and/or Reggio program speak to this?
Thanks in advance!
