Families Unit Overview
updated February 13, 2010

The Waldorf method emphasizes imaginative play, art and creative activities, music, storytelling, authentic handwork, and honoring the rhythms of the seasons and of life. The preschool years are recognized to be a special time in the development of the child.

This unit is designed to be taught during the Winter.
