Can such a thing exist? 


I love the Waldorf method but I also love so much about unschooling and I feel torn wondering if "doing" both is feasible? I love the rhythm and gentle harmony of Waldorf, the natural toys, the celebrations of festivals and things like that but I like the idea of just learning what we want, when we want. 


I think I'm torn and I would love advice from folks that are following this sort of learning

It seems like there have been several threads about this topic just recently. I did a search, and some newer one and older one came up. Here are  3 random ones, one is very recent, I believe.





My kids are 8, 5 and 2!

I totally think the noncoercive unschooling approach can go with a Waldorf lifestyle. My family is pretty natural parenting, whole foods, lots of time outdoors, etc.. We don't assign school work, but we do tons of activities together, including circle time, etc. As long as the kids like it and its voluntary, I don't think it conflicts with unschooling.
