"Early childhood happens only once. It is precious. Whatever happens in these first years cannot be repeated in the same way later on. Nokken [the author’s kindergarten in Denmark] recognizes this. This book helps us in honoring and respecting the being of the little child, allowing unhurried time for development, and allowing time to enjoy the gradual and miraculous unfolding of the human being. We can develop new conscious intention in our interaction with our children and one another - at meal times, sleep times, walks in nature - as well as in festival celebrations. This book is a guide to help us discover richness in the daily life we already have by slowing down and allowing ourselves and our children room to breathe and grow. This could be called a handbook for slow growing."
Helle Heckmann is the founder and Director of Nøkken, a Waldorf daycare centre in Denmark for children aged between 1 and 7. Nøkken has served as an inspiration for Waldorf kindergartens and nurseries worldwide.
This book shares the basic attitudes of the parents, caregivers and teachers who comprise the community at Nokken. An ideal introduction for early childhood centres, homeschoolers, or parents of small children.
