RoSE – Research on Steiner Education




Dear friends of Waldorf early childhood education, dear educators and parents,

When one is working in a Waldorf kindergarten or child care, there is little time for reading. Our school colleagues and friends can often hardly believe that we invest so much time in practical preparations, practicing rhythmic games and music, meeting with parents, and so on. Not to mention the fact that when we return home after a day in a kindergarten feeling, it sometimes feels as if we had gone on a long hike in the mountains!  

Nonetheless, most colleagues and friends are very interested in further education and in the exchange of ideas and practice with other colleagues. For them and for all friends of Waldorf early childhood education, we have prepared a special issue of our IASWECE newsletter: reports from China, Russia and Ukraine, a presentation of English language newsletters on Waldorf early childhood education, conference announcements and also a preview of new publications. The reports offer a glimpse into the work in early childhood training projects around the world that are supported by IASWECE, and may also stimulate you to consider becoming involved in training courses in Beijing or Odessa!

With all good wishes for your reading, on behalf of the IASWECE Council

Philipp Reubke, Clara Aerts, Susan Howard
