The practical application of the Waldorf curriculum
The curriculum is designed with the growing child in mind. Year by year, following the developmental stages of childhood, the curriculum mirrors the inner development of the child and seeks to give the child experiences that they are unconsciously yearning for. This makes the lessons both relevant and satisfying.
All the important material offered in the conventional schools is covered - in fact much more - with an approach carefully developed for each age. The breadth and depth of the curriculum is a unique aspect of the Waldorf Education. The material covered is used as an integrated whole with one part always enhancing another.
This section provides a more comprehensive description of the curriculum as it is practically applied to each grade through the child's schooling.
