Rhythm is the bearer of life, and therewith the bearer of health.
~ Rudolf Steiner ~
Play is paramount in the life of a child, and Waldorf schools utilize this truth to optimize each child’s learning and development. The 100-year-old Waldorf philosophy of a play-based curriculum in the early years has been substantiated in research by the American Academy of Pediatrics, which states that play is integral for a healthy childhood and necessary for social and intellectual development when formal academics begin in the grade school.
