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 – Emerson Waldorf School Part 1/4
From our friends at the Emerson Waldorf School.
To fully experience the essence of a Waldorf education, one must physically enter the classroom, but this video is the next best thing to being there.
Produced by Emerson Waldorf School for parents and students seeking a pedagogy that meets the needs of students at each stage of development, Early Childhood through High School, while nurturing the whole student – body, mind, and spirit.
Part 1 includes an introduction to Waldorf education, Early Childhood, Grade 1, and Grade 2.
* 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.
