Free to Learn introduces the principles and methods of Steiner Waldorf early childhood education and childcare. Lynne Oldfield, Director of the London Steiner Waldorf Early Childhood Teacher Training Course, draws on kindergarten experience from around the world, with stories, helpful insights, lively observations and vivid pictures. The approach of Steiner Waldorf kindergartens and childcare centres is that children's early learning is profound, that childhood matters and that the early years should be enjoyed, not rushed through. Lynne Oldfield asks:

•What is movement-based learning and healthy child development?
•Why is creative play so crucial?
•How do children learn through imitation and rhythm?
•Why is nourishing the senses important?
•When are children really ready for school?

She explores the Waldorf early childhood experience, the cultivation of healthy senses and child development, current global practice and the life and educational work of Rudolf Steiner.
