Reclaim Early Childhood The Philosophy, Psychology, and Practice of Steiner-Waldorf Early Years Education


NEW! Published May 2019
Reclaim Early Childhood presents a clear, deep and accessible overview of the philosophical, developmental and educational foundations of Rudolf Steiner-Waldorf education as a dynamic, adaptable, creative process for which a profound sense of the uniqueness of each child is foundational.

This book is based on up-to-date, inquiry-based research on Steiner-Waldorf early years education. It is unique in its breadth and depth on the philosophical foundations of early child development and learning. It compares Steiner-Waldorf pedagogy critically with mainstream early years education, and is illustrated by examples from kindergartens around the world.
