Public school could use a little Waldorf infusion ;)

I work in public schools, but I have to say I like the philosophy of the Waldorf schools. I agree little ones don’t need to be learning so much from screens and really would do better with more movement-based activities incorporated into their learning. Of course technology has its place, but overall, I can’t imagine any OT who doesn’t agree with the idea that children need more movement and creativity built into their school day. Too bad that’s so hard now but some teachers get creative in public school with how to make that happen! 🙂
