We aren’t talking about the hotel in New York City or its namesake tasty salad! Our Waldorf Toys Buying Guide is all about playthings that are based on the Waldorf education method. If you’ve heard of it but aren’t quite sure what it’s all about, we’re here to break it down for you.
✔️ The first Waldorf school was founded in 1919 in Germany because the owner of the Waldorf-Astoria Cigarette Factory needed a school for the children of his workers.
✔️ Rudolf Steiner was brought in as the director and applied his principles of child development, which is why this form of teaching is also called Steiner education.
✔️ Today, there are over 1,300 schools and 2,000 early childhood education centers in over 60 countries.
The easiest way to understand the Waldorf learning process is:
🙎🏻♂️ Head (Thinking)
❤️ Heart (Feeling)
🖐🏽 Hand (Doing).
It’s a balanced approach that engages a child academically, emotionally and physically.
