I run an accredited Waldorf dayhome, and have been doing so for the past 5 years. There is a strong focus on rhythm and routine, a calm and welcoming atmosphere, and protection of the senses - no TV here! We play outside daily, and free play is much of our day. I follow an emergent curriculum with a Waldorf bent; the children's unique interests are supported in the activities and materials. I am continually upgrading my education, and should receive my Early Learning and Childcare diploma in the summer of 2014.
