Simply Waldorf mission is to offer practical support and guidance for all types of Waldorf education

Hello

We are Rev and Brian, the founders of Simply Waldorf.  We worked together at a small Waldorf school for many years. In addition to our work with that school, we also taught and presented in various conferences and trainings to support educators of all kinds: classroom teachers, subject teachers, administrators, pedagogical directors, and homeschooling parent-educators.

 

While working at that school, we helped create and grow all-new homeschooling programs for families like you, parent-educators who wanted to imbue their homeschooling efforts with Waldorf inspired curriculum. Working with so many homeschooling families, we learned just how much our training and experiences in Waldorf education could support and enhance those families’ homeschooling endeavors.

 

We realized that every educator is at their own particular place along the path.  From someone just starting out with Waldorf education—whether in a school or a home setting—to those who have more experience and familiarity with it, the needs can and do vary.  We are dedicated to providing curricular and pedagogical support that will meet your particular needs.  The beauty of Waldorf education is that, by placing the child and child development at the center of all considerations, the lessons become quite simple.  Therefore, if you are new to Waldorf, you will find simple and practical lessons to support your efforts.  Likewise, if you have more familiarity, you can access deeper support and insights for your efforts.

 

And of course, we are also on a journey.  Our programs and lessons will be growing and developing constantly.  From our video lessons to articles and podcasts, we will share and explore wide-ranging topics with you. From basic lesson examples and practical lesson planning, we will help anyone get started.  We will also share resources extending into deeper pedagogical insights such as child development, temperaments, the incorporation of movement to support lessons, the balance of academics with artistic activities and more!

 

We are excited to work with you so that you find the support you are looking for!
