Excerpts from lectures by Rudolf Steiner Compiled for the use of Kindergarten Teachers

This book is meant to be a help for those working in Kindergartens founded on the educational principles of Rudolf Steiner. All the parents of little children, students and friends of Waldorf Education who are interested in a deeper understanding of child development will find in this book guide lines for The Study of Man.

It was Elizabeth Grunelius who first suggested compiling the following excerpts from Rudolf Steiner's books and lectures. Already in the early twenties she asked Rudolf Steiner for suggestions on pre-school education, and founded the very first Waldorf Kindergarten in Stuttgart.

It is advisable to read the quoted passages in the context of the whole lecture. Unfortunately some of Rudolf Steiner's lectures on education have not yet been translated. The books and lectures we quote have all been translated into English.
