Starting your Day the Waldorf Way

Children in Waldorf education don’t begin their day with desks and worksheets. In most Waldorf educational settings they spend up to an hour each morning participating in a circle time which consists of rhymes, story telling, movement, poetry, etc. These activities help warm up the child’s body, get their blood flowing to their brain and engage their senses so that they are not only ready to learn but excited to start their day!
