LifeWays–nurturing families, inspiring childcare!   LifeWays is a rich and wonderful resource for families with young children!
LifeWays North America is coming to the big, old house on Bluewater Hill in Westport to give a workshop on April 13th and 14th. For parents, grandparents, caregivers, early childhood teachers, it will be an introduction to LifeWays–the training and certification program– but also an especially engaging, inspiring experience on it’s own for anyone involved with babies and/or young children. (Babes in arms welcome!)  Mary O’Connell, extraordinary early childhood specialist, will be leading the workshop.
LifeWays North America, Inc. is devoted to healthy child care practices, and providing parent-child programs and training programs for caregivers, nannies, parents, home based preschool teachers, after school care providers and parent educators. These activities are inspired by the educational works of Rudolf Steiner and are supported by contemporary early childhood research as well as common sense and wisdom of many generations of parents.
LifeWays practices are based upon the fundamental need for relationship-based care (bonding and continuity), neurological research, and recognition of living arts (domestic, nurturing, creative and social arts) as central to the advancement of children’s social, emotional and intellectual skills. These practices can be applied in parenting, in family childcare homes, and in childcare centers.
“We need more homes and day care centers to offer life based, simplicity based, wonder based care: a level of care that inspires a sense of goodness in the world for our young children; a sense of calm support for our families; and the joy of lifelong learning for our children, caregivers, and teachers.” –Cynthia Aldinger founder of LifeWays North America
“Receive the Child in reverence. Educate the child in love. Send the child forth in Freedom” –Dr. Rudolf Steiner
“Our hope for the future must be that children are increasingly understood, nurtured and protected. It is up to us to make sure that this happens.” — Dr. Raoul Goldberg
