When I am asked by homeschoolers interested in Waldorf education to recommend a curriculum for their 3- to 6-year olds, I tell them, “Relax! Life is the curriculum for the young child.”
Young children will learn everything they need to know and be prepared for formal learning later by participating in family life, household tasks and receiving nurturing care.
Being conscious of what children need to grow in body, mind and spirit, allows you to provide them with everything they need during these early years through daily living.
