Waldorf Education is a successful holistic model designed to
provide the right activity at the right time, allowing each child's
abilities to unfold. In the first seven years, the child seeks to
experience the world as a place of goodness, and learns primarily
through imitation and activity. Great care is taken in planning a
curriculum that fosters wonder, joy and possibility, the early
foundations for creative thinking.
