Nurturing Children and Families

In stock

Nurturing Children and Families by Sarah Baldwin (owner of Bella Luna Toys!) is a practical, how-to guide on how to create and lead a parent/child class or play group inspired by Waldorf education.

Before the publication of this volume, no books and very few printed resources existed for those seeking to start a Waldorf parent/child class or playgroup.

This book describes a personal journey and serves as a practical guide for anyone wishing to start a such a group. It is full of details on "how to" and "how not to," while stressing that there is not one correct way of doing things. The extensive appendix includes resources such as stories appropriate for ages 1-3; snacktime recipes; and lists of helpful books and mail-order suppliers of all things Waldorf.

While written with the parent/child teacher or playgroup leader in mind, this book will also benefit Waldorf early childhood teachers, play group leaders, and anyone homeschooling preschoolers. Ideas for daily rhythms are given in detail, as well as many considerations on working with birth- to 3-year-olds.

New 10th anniversary edition features a new foreword, updated information, and an appendix of resources.

"If you haven't already, you must get Sarah's book about working with groups of young children in a Waldorf setting. Every single one of you who has a co-op, or just meets with friends but is trying to create some sort of Waldorf-inspired setting for children of kindergarten age or younger, please do yourselves a huge favor and get Sarah's book!

"Although she mainly speaks about programs within the context of a Waldorf school, it is INVALUABLE to anyone who is seeking to bring a Waldorf mood, flavor, content to the early years program they are running, either as a co-op or, as some of you do, in a childcare situation."
