How early to start in early education
Hi there! I have a 20 month old daughter and both my husband and I work (I've worked part time). We've had a couple of nannies since she was born since I didn't feel like I could leave my baby in a daycare. Our local Waldorf school has an early childhood education program that starts at 24 months. We are considering enrolling her there but I wanted to get the advice from other waldorf parents. What age would you say is a good age to start at an waldorf school? Is she still too young?
We have read and watched a gazillion videos about Waldorf education and we are 100% sure that is the place for our children. I just don't now when to start. I love the idea of a home like setting, the calm and rhythmic environment. But in my opinion, little ones need LOOOOOTS of love and attention and hugs and kisses. That's what they need most and sometimes I'm afraid that at 2yo she will still be too young to be away from home. Thoughts? I would love to hear the experience of those of you who have had a child go though waldorf as a toddler.
