Description:     

The kindergarten years—when children are between about three and six years of age—are some of the most formative in their development. At the heart of early years, Waldorf education is the concept of “life forces,” or one’s “etheric body.” To help children grow into healthy adults who can fulfill their potential, these forces must be recognized and nurtured properly.

This book is essential reading for any teacher or parent. It offers accessible ways to understand and visualize the difficult concept of life forces in children. It also provides practical examples of how to nurture children at different educational stages and to stimulate healthy and active development.

Although the author addresses challenging ideas, this book will be both inspiring and empowering for anyone involved with young children.
