The most important thing for which we can prepare a child is the experience of freedom, at the right moment in life, through the understanding of one's own being.

 

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925)

About us

This page is created by the Pedagogical Section at the Goetheanum on behalf of the International Forum for Steiner/Waldorf Education. We are dedicated to supporting Steiner Waldorf Teachers worldwide by providing the best possible resources and articles. 

 

Children and teenagers are the reason why there are nurseries, playgroups, kindergartens and schools in the world. The young generation is the true principal for all those who care for our children's wellbeing. With this website we want to support all those who are connected to this task.

 

In the categories Foundation, Early Childhood, Teaching Practice, Self Development and School Management you will find collections of articles focusing on various aspects of preparation. How can a school lesson or a sequence of activities for the kindergarten be prepared? What is important for very young children? How may a parents' evening be planned and what are the preconditions for cooperative school management?

 

This website focuses on the conditions needed to plan and implement learning opportunities in schools, kindergartens and wherever children and teenagers are being cared for. We also address questions connected to personal and professional self development.

 

The Forums enable, support and encourage the worldwide exchange of ideas and concerns among teachers.

 

A list of international conferences, adult education courses and more is available in the category Events. Please do not hesitate to contact us with information about any other event you would like to publish here.

 

Dear practicing teachers and educators at Waldorf Steiner Schools worldwide: Your cooperation is invaluable to keep this site alive and stimulating.
