Nurturing Potential in the Kindergarten Years
A Guide for Teachers, Carers, and Parents
The kindergarten years—when children are between about three and
six years of age—are some of the most formative in their development. At
the heart of early years, Waldorf education is the concept of “life
forces,” or one’s “etheric body.” To help children grow into healthy
adults who can fulfill their potential, these forces must be recognized
and nurtured properly.
This book is essential reading for any
teacher or parent. It offers accessible ways to understand and visualize
the difficult concept of life forces in children. It also provides
practical examples of how to nurture children at different educational
stages and to stimulate healthy and active development.
Although the author addresses challenging ideas, this book will be both
inspiring and empowering for anyone involved with young children.
