Here is an overview of the proposed Early Childhood study group.
GOAL: To embark on an 11 stop journey during which we hope to come to a better understanding of how Waldorf education works and how our children are growing. For parents, the group will become both a source of support and intelligence for better raising our children.
TIME: The group will meet once a month starting in June.
CONTENT: The study group will begin looking at three lectures by Rudolf Steiner on the foundation of the first Waldorf School and then proceed to 1-3 books tbd that deal specifically with the age our children are passing through (and ahead). The 3 lectures can be found in the book: "What is Waldorf Education: Three Lectures by Rudolph Steiner". You may be able to find them for free online or at amazon.com.
Each 1 hour group session will be comprised of:
Review of selected reading by one parent and questions (one parent will be asked to volunteer a review each time and each parent is asked to bring a question each time). For the first session, please attend having read the first lecture.
LOCATION: Meeting places and times are TBD
We are looking into running a Sunday Child and Parent class in addtion.
Please let me know if you have any interest in either..
