The uniqueness of the Waldorf curriculum lies primarily in how and when the children are taught, rather than in what is taught.  In presenting material, the encounter comes first; then encounter becomes experience; and out of experience crystallizes the concept.   Perception, feeling, idea: three steps in a genuine learning process that prepares the intellect for the abstract and conceptual thinking which will become possible later, in adolescence.
