The Secret to Growing Brilliant Children tells you everything you need to know about Steiner's revolutionary educational approach, and how remarkably aligned it is to the latest research in education and developmental psychology. Discover how to adapt it for the 21st Century to help create healthier futures for our children. This book is the first in a series of three that will explore how to contemporise the core values of Steiner Education for our times. In its seven research-based chapters you will form a deep understanding of Rudolf Steiner's vision, how Steiner Education works, and what its role could be in preparing our children for futures of great change, complexity, and uncertainty. This peer-reviewed material, previously published in a range of journals and scholarly books, is here brought together for the first time as a single reference work. It is designed for all readers, from parents, to teachers, education researchers, and government policy makers.
