What is Waldorf education?
Academics are de-emphasized in the early years with all subjects instead introduced through artistic mediums. Learning in elementary grades is non-competitive with no grades being given. The use of electronic media, particularly television, by young children is strongly discouraged. Waldorf education methods aim to educate the whole child, "head, heart and hands", to encourage creativity and free-thinking.
