Vancouver Waldorf School – Movie Monday
Each Monday we will feature a short film relating to Waldorf Education. Perhaps a lecture, pedagogical content, sister-school production, or tutorial.
Please enjoy today’s presentation:
Sister School – Chicago Waldorf School: Early Childhood
From our friends at the Chicago Waldorf School.
Play is the heart of the Chicago Waldorf School’s Early Childhood program. Children develop the capacity for creative thinking, problem-solving abilities and social skills through their free imaginative play. In the classroom simple, natural materials—pieces of wood, seashells, beeswax and handcrafted toys—encourage children to form their own games and stories.

* The Vancouver Waldorf School provides an experiential, age appropriate approach to education based on the insights of Rudolf Steiner that inspires students to love learning, to be creative, open-minded, and compassionate. With a curriculum that integrates all academics with the arts and social learning, Waldorf Education develops not only the left and right hemispheres of the brain, but the whole human being. A child’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual development is considered equally, supporting a conscious unfolding of the individuality within each student. Waldorf graduates possess capacities for empathy and clear, creative and independent thinking that enables them to carry out a chosen course of action with moral courage and social responsibility.
