Why Waldorf?

I’ve been asked the question “Why Waldorf?”  many times.  Well, here’s the answer (in a nutshell… so to speak.)

Rudolf Steiner gave birth to the Waldorf philosophy of education following World War I.
He championed a method of learning that embraced the “whole child.” Waldorf education acknowledges:
1.The unique physical,
2.Academic,
3.Behavioral,
4.Emotional,
5.The spiritual needs of children.
Lovingly and gently, Waldorf education cultivates those needs through activity and imagination.

Steiner said, “Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings, who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives.” (AWSNA)

About Missy

I'm a wife to an awesome Army vet, and mother to four daughters and three step-sons! I love to sew. I learned to sew in 4H, and from my Oma while staying with her for a week or two in the summers as a young girl. I love to bake desserts. I would love to live on lots of land and own lots of animals. I've always been drawn to nature which has lead me towards a more natural and healthy lifestyle which I'm finally trying to bring back into my life, and those precious lives around me.
