There are more than 2,000 Waldorf early-years centers worldwide and the number keeps growing. What are the principles and characteristics of Waldorf kindergartens? What are the challenges facing them in the twenty-first century?

This book of articles by Waldorf experts is a valuable overview of the current state of early-years education. It includes sections on kindergartens worldwide and the vision behind them, as well as the basics of child development. It also looks in detail at contemporary practice, from daily rhythms and nutrition to singing, eurythmy, working with parents, media, and technology.

The contributors are experienced Waldorf teachers and educators. They include the editors, Marie-Luise Compani and Peter Lange, along with Freya Jaffke, Andreas Neider, Claudia McKeen, Angelika Prange, Jacqueline Walter-Baumgartner, Elisabeth Gobel, Michael Kassner, and Claudia Grah-Wittich.

This is both a useful introduction for parents and an informative review for Waldorf professionals.
