Sharing Is Caring
The inspirational Helle Heckmann, who has set the standard internationally in Steiner/ Waldorf based early childhood education takes us through a day in the renowned ‘Nokken’ kindergarten in DENMARK.
Helle helps us to understand the importance of giving children the freedom to just ‘be’ while at the same time thoughtfully structuring their experiences to best meet their developmental needs. Helle is a strong advocate of outdoor time with children.
The DVD describes everyday life in Nokken and the conditions they live in. Helle mentions, ‘It is not to be viewed as an ultimate model, but rather as an inspiration to other kindergartens showing why we do what we do. it also allows parents to gain some insights into why we, as professionals, have structured the day the way we have. How this expresses itself throughout the day may help to answer some of the unspoken questions parents have’.
