Play is the Child's Work
“Imagination is more important than knowledge – for knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world and all there ever will be to know and understand.” - Albert Einstein
Following the philosophies of Dr. Rudolf Steiner, Waldorf education is founded in a profound understanding of the various stages of human development. It is because of this deep understanding and the artistic approach to teaching that the Waldorf curriculum is a healing approach to learning. Play is seen as serious work because it is through play that children discover, explore, learn to think creatively, solve problems and develop social skills. These skills build the foundation for successful learning in later grades. To allow children to be immersed in imaginative play under the guidance of a qualified Waldorf teacher is one of the most precious gifts you can give your child in these early years.
At Seeds of Joy Village childrens' physical development is strengthened by learning to climb, run and balance in nature. Their playground is an over 11-acres wilderness park with a lake, rocks, hills, fishes, turtles etc. Furthermore children at Seeds of Joy Village grow up in a respectful and positive environment with a loving teacher and role models worthy of imitation. They learn to trust that the world is a good, exciting and wonderful place to live in.
