Dear Waldorf moms,
Please share your ideas.
I have been going to a parent-child class with my DD since Sept to our local Waldorf school. I truly love it there, I am truly enchanted by the atmoshere and the lovely teachers.
Just recently another mom from our class told me she is leaving the school because the family believes that Anthroposophy will be directly or indirectly taught to the children and that they are a cult??
I did my research and I tried to be as objective as possible, some things in Steiner's philosophy freak me out, I totally disagree with them and I would never want my little one to learn these things until she is a lot lot older...but on the other hand I love the school and it is a nurturing and warm environment btw I have implemented some ideas from Waldorf books like Seven Times the Sun and Beyond the Rainbow Bridge and our family life has impreoved a lot...
Now my DH doesn't want to take our DD there and he is thinking of a Montessori...I mean I am sure Montessori will be better than a "conventional" school but my heart says Waldorf and my mind says Montessori...
What do you guys think? I know it has been discussed numerous times but I find making the right decision for my DD's education really tough right now and could use some insight.
Thank you mommas :)
