"Waldorf graduates are taught to question, not to accept ideas and conventions based solely on authority, but to think for themselves."
From Learning to Learn, Interviews with Waldorf graduates
“What every parent would wish as the best for his or her children, Waldorf education provides. The fullest development of intelligent, imaginative, self-confident and caring persons is the aim of Waldorf education. This aim is solidly grounded in a comprehensive view of human development, in an intellectually rich curriculum, and in the presence of knowledgeable, caring human beings at every stage of the child’s education.”
Dr. Douglas Sloane, Professor of Education
"The importance of storytelling, of the natural rhythms of daily life, of the evolutionary changes in the child, of art as the necessary underpinning of learning, and of the aesthetic environment as a whole--all basic to Waldorf education for the past 70 years--are being 'discovered' and verified by researchers unconnected to the Waldorf movement."
Paul Bayers, Professor Columbia Teachers' College
"Flexible, agile fingers in childhood lead to mobile, creative thinking in adult life."
Alstan L. Hegg
"Education is not a race where the prize goes to the one who finishes first. To help young children develop a lifelong love of learning we need to respect and strengthen their individual abilities."
