Product Description

Details

Helle Heckmann describes a delightful Danish Waldorf childcare facility for children ages 1-7.


Nøkken is a wonderful example of a healthy child-care facility which accepts children from the age of one. This extended case study explores what places like Nøkken can offer for children and their families.


It is very practical, covering issues of staff relations, number of children, the rhythm of the day, parent relations, seasonal celebrations and birthdays, and financing the centre. Throughout, the Steiner-Waldorf principles underpinning the kindergarten shine through.


This edition has been fully updated and expanded, including a new Foreword by Patricia Lambert and selections from Heckmann's other book about Nøkken, A Garden for Kids.
