“The Waldorf Philosophy of teaching embraces the biological, psychological and emotional stages of each child’s development. This type of education addresses the whole child and allows him/her to explore and nourish their talents, gain confidence and acquire a foundation of social, emotional and intellectual stability. I am privileged to bear witness to this within my own son’s educational journey and the children I am surrounded by each day.”
