Waldorf early education, from its inception, has incorporated opportunities for social-emotional development through wholesome day-to-day experiences. But a host of world events and societal issues have impacted the way in which children meet each other and the world. In Becoming and Belonging, the WECAN Early Childhood Research Group re-examines essential aspects of early childhood education in light of these influences. How can we better support children to meet our current social challenges? How can we prepare them to meet the social challenges of the future?

Becoming and Belonging discusses creating space for emotional well-being and social healing, establishing the foundations for healthy relationships, nourishing sensory development, and more.

Perfect bound, 240 pages.
