A Typical Day in Kindergarten

The daily, weekly and yearly rhythms of a Waldorf class provide a welcome security for the young child. The predictability of knowing “what comes next” allows children to relax and be fully present in the moment. The daily schedule and weekly patterns of meaningful work such as washing, ironing, grinding grain, and baking bread provide a comforting sense of time and structure.
