“I Am New To Waldorf: How Can I Find Out More?”

This comes up quite a bit.  Honestly, I think the best place to start is Steiner himself and then delve into other people’s works.  Here are my suggestions: 

Introductory Works To Waldorf Education:

  • The Kingdom of Childhood  – Steiner
  • The Education of The Child  – Steiner
  • The Spirit of The Waldorf School  – Steiner
  • Soul Economy  – Steiner (Maybe more an intermediate level, but probably my favorite in many ways).
  • These books can be bought here:  http://www.waldorfbooks.com/edu/steiner_waldorf.htm

For Children Under The Age of 7:   one of the Following:

  • You Are Your Child’s First Teacher (check your library for this title) (Dancy Baldwin)
  • Heaven on Earth (Oppenheimer)
  • Beyond the Rainbow Bridge (Patterson and Bradley)

For the Big Overall Picture Of Waldorf Education – Otherwise Known As “The Kindergarten Years Are Very Short”:

  • The Waldorf Parenting Handbook (Cusick)
  • Waldorf Education:  A Family Guide (Fenner and Rivers)
  • School As A Journey (Finser)
  • The Christopherus Waldorf Curriculum Overview for Homeschoolers (Simmons)

 I hope that is helpful to some of you.

Many blessings,
