An introduction to the principles and methods of Steiner Waldorf Early Childhood education. Lynne Oldfield draws on kindergarten experience from around the world with stories, helpful insights, lively observations and pictures. She invites the reader to explore Steiner Waldorf kindergartens. Here teachers and parents believe that a child's early learning is profound, that childhood matters and that the early years should be enjoyed, not rushed through.

The book addresses the following issues:
how do kindergartens enable healthy child development?
what is "movement based learning"?
creative play - why is it so crucial?
how do children learn through imitation and rhythm?
why is nourishing the senses important?
when are children ready for school?
