On the Play of the Child

Indications by Rudolf Steiner for Working with Young Children

Selected and edited by Freya Jaffke

2nd English Edition



This new edition combines two resources that came into being just before and after the international gathering of Waldorf early childhood educators in Dornach, Switzerland in 2005. In On the Play of the Child, Freya Jaffke compiled statements by Rudolf Steiner about play and related topics, to serve as study material for the conference. Playing, Learning, Meeting the Other collects five of the lectures that were given at the 2005 conference, around the themes of play, development and learning, and the all-important encounter with the other. Together, they provide important insights that can inspire and inform our work with young children.
