Waldorf Essentials Early Childhood & Kindergarten

A full, two year Waldorf inspired kindergarten experience. 

For many families, this will be their first step on the Waldorf path. We have packed everything you will need to get started. This will prepare you for early childhood plus two full years of kindergarten. This also includes Waldorf homeschool teacher training as well as support and mentoring.

"We only have to act in ways that are worthy of the child's gratitude and it will flow toward us, especially during the first period of life." ~ Rudolf Steiner, Gratitude, Love, and Duty

Original content.

Meet Super Sam.  He's a gnome that lives in the forest, helps his friends and loves his family.  We have two full years, 52 weeks each, of stories about Sam and his friends.  We occasionally tie in some other stories and also bring age appropriate fairy tales to the second year.

Handwork.

Handwork is a hallmark of Waldorf and we start you out right with plenty of patterns AND instruction! Each month will bring a new (optional) project for Mom.  

Circle Time Creation.

Circle time creation can be stressful.  We take the stress out with our guidelines, song bank and all the tunes!

Everything is better with friends.

Community is wonderful.  Community outside of Facebook is even better.  We've found that so many families are looking for an alternative to Facebook which we now offer.  Talk about handwork struggles, your 6 year change wins and get coaching help from me!

Training & Mentoring

We found that families who have training in Waldorf foundations really excel in their homeschooling. We provide you with a full year access to our Thinking Feeling Willing program as well as access to weekly coaching calls with Melisa or one of her coaches.

Hard Copies of the Curriculum

Despite my best attempts at downsizing my collection, at the end of the day I am a book in hand kinda gal. We provide you with a hard copy of the curriculum as well as a Planning for Peace journal and a copy of our book Rhythm & Waldorf Homeschool Planning.

An App!

We want you to be able to get everything you need quickly! Our app will allow you to have it all at your fingertips. Our support groups are also easily accessed on the app.

This is an amazing resource! Here's what's included:

  • Foundations, Beyond the Early Years – This section is all about rhythm and how to work on forming one in your home with a young child. We explore movement, the role of circle time in your home, discuss festivals, the nature table, and first-grade readiness.
  • Original Stories! With a few exceptions, all the stories are originals, written by me for children.
  • "Before the Journey"  is our early childhood primer for MOM.  We follow four women who are beginning their Waldorf journey. We go through festivals and include some recipes, all while showing natural home life for the early years.  
  • First Year Kindergarten, age 5 – During this year, we meet Super Sam through 52 weeks of stories, handwork for Mom, recipes, nature table ideas and festival celebrations. Super Sam is a huge star!  There are Facebook groups dedicated to making props for his stories.
  • Second Year Kindergarten, age 6 –  During this year, we continue down our path on Super Sam’s adventures with 52 more weeks of new stories as we help prepare your child for first grade. We celebrate more festivals, provide more recipes and dip your child’s toes into the beautiful well of fairy tales that will permeate his or her first-grade year. Super Sam begins to get a sense of who he might be – a lot like the six-year-old.  There are many ways that these stories will touch your child going through these changes.
  • Monthly Handwork for Mom – 20 handwork videos, 45 handwork projects with more being added regularly.
  • Circle Time Laid Out – We have a completely laid out circle for each month and a library of  audios for each song. It includes our ENTIRE Circle Time Creation course!
  • Recipes!  Recipes for each week, many can easily be adjusted to special dietary needs.
  • APP!  We have an app to make accessing our product quick and easy!
  • BONUS - Planning for Peace Early Childhood & Kindergarten edition.
  • This is accessible for the Southern Hemisphere! We have adjusted the story schedule just for our friends south of the Equator!

Common questions answered :)

Q.  Does this include all the curriculum I will need to teach kindergarten at home?

A. YES!  We include story content for two full years of kindergarten at home as well as laid out circles with the melodies, recipes and more.

Q. Will this curriculum introduce the letters to my child?

A. No. In Waldorf that is grade 1 content.  Grade 1 is intended for the child that is 7 or nearly 7.  Kindergarten is for two years beginning at 5 or nearly 5. 

Q. Does this include supplies?

A. This program does NOT include supplies such as crayons, beeswax, etc. We have a favorite supplier, you can find her HERE.  There is a recommended supply list in the curriculum.

Q. Is coaching included?

A. Yes! You are invited to coaching calls four times a month.

Q. Is this curriculum secular? 

A. That is a tricky question! We encourage inner work for parents.  That is spiritual but NOT religious in content.  In the curriculum, Super Sam celebrates several different festivals from different faiths.  While he is a little gnome that you will see often pictured as a Caucasian boy, that is only because he was inspired by our son.  We encourage families to make the characters their own and bring whatever ethnicity to him that they wish.  Super Sam's adventures take him to different places all over the world and we hope that you will infuse him with your creativity as well.

Q. Is this digital or hard copy?

A. Both. You will be shipped a copy of the curriculum, plus a Planning for Peace journal and a copy of Rhythm & Waldorf Homeschool Planning.  You will also have digital access to the curriculum and the training.  

Q. This looks pretty Mom centered, are you sensitive to non-traditional families?

A. YES!  In our home, both my husband, Erik and I do the teaching AND the working.  We work with moms, dads, grandparents, foster/adoptive parents and more. We are here to help you be present and connected with your CHILD, that is our focus.

Q. I still have questions, how can I answer them?

A. Send me an email I am happy to help.
