Healthy development is dependent upon opportunities for movement with potent imaginations that invite the child to integrate into their body in order to feel the treasured sense of well-being. In this course, we will explore various ways to understand and support the young child’s four foundational senses with applications in the classroom setting.
Ideas to practically set up the classroom to give ample opportunities for the children to experience various ways to satisfy their sensory needs will be shared. Adventures for circle time and games will also be practiced.
Nutrition from an anthroposophical viewpoint will also be discussed with suggestions for snack in the early childhood that is truly nourishing the children in our care. Johanna Müller Laurelin will lead Eurythmy.
Laurie Clark has had the privilege of being a Waldorf early educator since 1978. She incorporates her therapeutic training into all aspects of the classroom and is in continual research through observation and constant engagement with the young child. The deep question of how to meet the child of today and exploring their needs in practical applications lies at the heart of her work. Laurie mentors teachers, is a frequent conference presenter and has co-authored two books with Nancy Blanning on therapeutic movement for young children.

A child’s entire school experience is influenced by the development of healthy early movement patterns. Our busy culture interferes with the natural flow of this development. In this workshop we will explore the fundamentals of this process, and create dynamic, imagination-rich activities to support healthy growth in our children.
