Under the Stars: The Foundations of Steiner Waldorf Early Childhood Education

Under the Stars is a profound and practical anthology on the principles and methods of Waldorf early-childhood education. The purpose is to help early-years educators deepen their insights into Steiner’s inspiring, holistic understanding of children. Rather than providing recipes, the book presents the author’s thought-provoking insights and principles that arise from lifelong work in kindergarten education. He ideas will free educators to transform their ways of observing children, their practice, and their self-development.

Contents:

  • Recognizing and nurturing the life forces of the young child.
  • Thinking and the consciousness of the young child.
  • The development and the education of the will, including an appendix on moral education in early childhood.
  • Relationships in early childhood: attachment, separation, individualisation. Children in the modern world.
  • Supporting movement development in the early years.
  • Self-directed play in early childhood.
  • Art experiences in early childhood education.
  • Self development and child observation.
  • Incarnation as a guide to self development.

About the Author

Dr. Renate Long-Breipohl taught kindergarten for many years and now advises and lectures around the world in early-childhood education and with the Sydney (Australia) Rudolf Steiner College. Her books originate as much from her own experience and research with young children as from Rudolf Steiner, though she believes that engaging with his thinking is a crucial foundation for educators. She is also the author of Supporting Self Directed Play in Steiner/Waldorf Early Childhood Education (WECAN, 2011).
