Here is the perfect companion to Sharifa Oppenheimer's Heaven on Earth: A Handbook for Parents of Young Children, which answers the initial and most pressing questions of new parents of young children. Inevitably, a big decision arises: How and where should my child be educated?

The authors featured in What Is a Waldorf Kindergarten? describe from experience the numerous aspects of the "Steiner school" approach to early childhood education. Readers will learn what lies behind the Waldorf kindergarten methods and the practical ways in which it is applied by teachers in the classroom. Throughout the book, the reader is guided by the sure and compassionate hand of longtime kindergarten teacher Sharifa Oppenheimer as she introduces the authors and each topic.

Given the confusing array of educational approaches available today, this book serves to clarify one of the most dynamic and successful approaches to beginning young children on the path of education and life in the world. An invaluable resource for parents of young children!
