Every month, the teachers from our Maple Village Waldorf School host a Parent Education evening where they discuss a Waldorf topic that is relevant to us and our children. These evening have been so helpful in understanding my children from a Waldorf perspective.
The topic for discussion last month was The Six Year Transformation. My Teddy is 5 and a half and as he nears this transformation, it’s invaluable to us to have the knowledge behind why he does and feels the way he does. This information makes me even more determined to nurture his sense of magic in these last years of early childhood as I know it resonates so strongly in his world and will only lessen from hear on out.
Thank you Ms Michelle for putting your wonderful talk into writing for us to refer to and share with others. Please click the heading below to read the article…

Discovering Waldorf is a weekly series of articles written by ‘everyday’ Waldorf families. The contributors to this series share their ‘real-life’ insights and inspirations on all kinds of Waldorf topics. This series is not meant to be Waldorf philosophy in its purest form, but rather a snapshot of how we can all incorporate Waldorf ideas into our lives to help nurture and encourage the magic that is in our children. If you have a topic you wish to learn more about (or want to share) on Discovering Waldorf, send me an email at Donni@theMagicOnions.com
Blessings and magic,
