If you are looking for support and information on home and/or un-schooling based on a Waldorf Inspired Curriculum, you have come to the right place! Please, make yourself a cup of tea and enjoy our site! As parents, you can provide nothing of more lasting value than an education which develops your child’s full human potential. Waldorf ideals for education emphasize and awaken disciplined creativity, wonder, reverence and respect for nature and human existence. Waldorf methods have proven to offer a holistic educational model designed to provide the right stimulus at the right time and allow each child’s abilities to fully unfold.

In the first seven years of life, the child seeks to see that the world is a place of goodness, and will learn primarily by imitation and through activity. In the next developmental phase (through puberty) the child most naturally learns through beauty, from adults who merit being authorities. (This is why storytelling and art are employed as teaching vehicles throughout the elementary curriculum.) Finally, entering into the third developmental stage, and ready at last for true independent thinking: the teenager naturally begins a quest for truth.

It is our hope that this site will become your favorite resource for your Waldorf home schooling and parenting. This site is updated regularly so bookmark it now and remember to check back again real soon for updates and new inspirations.

Blessings, Peace, Love & Light

  2. I found your blog on Google. I’ve bookmarked it and will watch out for your next blog post.

  3. What an excellent blog, I’ve added your feed to my RSS reader. :-)

  4. I really liked your blog!

  5. People deserve very good life time and I believe it begins with homeschooling.

  6. I read your blog all the time and I just thought Iā€™d say keep up the good work!

  7. Wow!! In 2005, I discovered your website and was so convinced that Waldorf was the way not only in schooling but in rearing a child. Then your website went down (or I couldn’t find it), but now you’re back! Hoorayyyy!

    My own children are now knitting and watercoloring and toymaking and generally learning through living. Thank you for teaching me, opening my eyes to Waldorf. Your absence was a sort of blessing in that I had to do my own research and form my own opinions. But now you’re all back, yay!

  8. Kitka, I pray you are well… miss our conversations. I am adding Waldorf Home Schooling to my sustainable communities world wide

  9. I landed here on my quest for direction in the education of our 3-year-old daughter. We have no schooling options where we live; the closest school to our home is over an hour away and in another state, so that’s right out. Truthfully, I cannot imagine putting our precious child into the public education system anyway. I attended parochial school, and while it was not perfect, I am very grateful for the quality of education I received and the development of my moral compass throughout my formal education. A dear friend of mine was fortunate to attend a Waldorf school in early childhood, and learning about her experiences has led me to seek more information. I now find that I actually feel a sense of loss knowing that there is not a Waldorf school available to my child (the closest one is about 8 hours from here). Knowing that the school years are coming soon, I have been thinking a lot lately about what path we will take. Homeschooling seems the only good option, though we may later move closer to an actual brick and mortar school. While I know that I cannot be a true Waldorf teacher without the proper education, I know that should we end up homeschooling I will want to incorporate as much as I can. Honestly, my heart tells me that homeschooling is the best path, but I have fears about my own adequacy or ability as a teacher that give me pause. Thank you for providing this resource. I believe that it will help me in my own journey toward making the best decision for our child.
