Early Childhood Education
“The essential task of the kindergarten teacher is to create the proper physical environment around the children.
“Physical environment” must be understood in the widest sense imaginable. It includes not just what happens around the children in the material sense, but everything that occurs in their environment, everything that can be perceived by their senses, that can work on the inner powers of the children from the surrounding physical space.”
-Rudolf Steiner, The Education of the Child
