Waldorf education is a practical education engaging the child’s will, her imagination, sense of aesthetics and intellect. What engages the child needs to have meaning to the child and has the ability to be applied. Thus its’ motive is to develop capacities rather than be an information driven approach.
At the heart of the Waldorf approach is the recognition that lessons must be presented to children in a way which fills them with wonder, enthusiasm, and meaningful understanding. How a subject is taught is equally important as to what is taught, hence the use of movement and arts in the curriculum.
