Reverence for Childhood
Pear Blossom offers a safe, loving and nurturing environment that shelters the child from the “too much, too soon, too fast” world in which we live. Here, we intentionally slow things down for the benefit of our children, and have created a haven where the joyfulness of childhood is respected and celebrated.
In keeping with LifeWays Principles and Practices, Pear Blossom recognizes that Childhood is a valid and authentic time unto itself and not just a time for preparing for school. As adults and parents in our modern-day society, we know life moves fast, sometimes too fast for us to keep up. Instinctively, we understand that the stress and pressures of our world are not good for anyone, especially our children.
The heart of the Waldorf method is the conviction that education is an art -it must speak to the child’s experience. To educate the whole child, his heart and will must be reached as well as his mind.Rudolf Steiner
