The author describes children's play in kindergarten and provides well-tried advice on this important stage of development at which young children love to imitate the work of adults. Topics are covered such as planning the day, festivals, rhythms, spontaneous and planned play, stages of development, creating a protective environment, and hyperactive and inactive children.
Parents and educators faced with the task of bringing up small children will find inspiration here to help them in their daily endeavors. The perspective that this book offers on the distinct character of children will enable teachers to find their individual way, as is appropriate to circumstances and particular abilities.
The author's accounts are based on observations and experience gained over decades working in the Waldorf kindergarten in Reutlingen, Germany.
