Each child’s journey is unique. As Waldorf educators, we strive to impact their journeys in ways that are both powerful and lifelong. How can we best connect children to their natural and wondrous abilities? How can we foster an environment fertile enough to spark their highest sense of purpose? When we allow them to have wonder it’s a gift, and it’s a seed that is planted in them that will grow into adulthood.  And, if we can do this, if we can plant the seeds of joy, and love, and gratitude through our teaching and through our support, then we are giving the child a gift for their future.
