Book by and
Have you heard about LifeWays and want to learn more?  The LifeWays approach to childcare could--and should--revolutionize childcare in North America.  Based on the work of Rudolf Steiner and others, LifeWays fosters relationship-based care that takes home as the model.  Children in mixed-age groups stay with the same care giver from infancy through age 5, providing the continuity and caring of an extended family unit.  This approach is adaptable to large centers, and small, in-home programs.  It also provides many valuable insights for parents, including the Living Arts, creating a rich environment, and creating daily and weekly rhythms.  Practical aspects of LifeWays training and opening an in-home program or even a center are also considered in detail.    Anyone involved in the care of young children should read this book--it is clearly written, well illustrated with photos, and holds the reader's interest throughout.
