our DS has been attending Waldorf KG for three years (he's 6 now). Mostly it was good experience and we all enjoyed it and would love to stay for grade school as well (although there is no ideal school
However, now due to quite a few reasons (financial !!!, possible moving and so on) we have to put him into the public system.
Here my anxiety goes up and some (or rather a lot
-how he would do academically (since in Waldorf KG no academics)?
- which grade he should go (in public system he should be in Grade 1 now, so next year by age he should go to gr.2), so if he goes to gr.1 he would be a year older than the rest of class
- how he would adjust to a different system (different philosophy, rules, environment....)?
- how to help him in this process?
Did somebody was on the same situation or know kids who had a transition from Waldorf to public?
I would really appreciate if you can share your story
