Child Development Informs Our Waldorf Curriculum K-8
The gradual development of the whole child (head, heart and hands) undergirds every principle of Waldorf-inspired education. As such, Winterberry works to honor the healthy unfolding of our children. The Waldorf-inspired curriculum at Winterberry can be seen as an ascending spiral. Each day, a strong foundation is laid for future learning. And each day, children learn optimally as teachers build on the previous foundation through relationship and an inherent love of learning.
The Waldorf Common Core Curriculum Alignment and Handbook prepared by the Alliance for Public Waldorf Education shows how and when the progression of traditional Waldorf curriculum dovetails with Common Core Standards. Winterberry is a current member of the Alliance.
