Waldorf Education Orientation this Friday!

Many people have been asking me about my choice of education for my children. I've been very vocal about loving the Waldorf Education curriculum because values are aligned with my wholistic lifestyle.

If you are on the quest for a school that truly nurtures the soul of the child (as well as the mind!) please do come to this orientation which is also open for household staff because we want everyone on the same page when raising our kids, right?

Happening July 31, Friday 2-3:30pm 


Because a friend of mine asked "What does Kolisko mean anyway? Here is an excerpt from Wikipedia:

Eugen Kolisko (21 March 1893 – 29 November 1939) was an Austrian-German physician and educator who was born in Vienna. He studied medicine at the University of Vienna, and in 1917 became a lecturer of medical chemistry. He was the son of pathologist Alexander Kolisko (1857-1918).
Eugen Kolisko is remembered for his pioneer work in anthroposophy. He was introduced to anthroposophy through his classmate, Walter Johannes Stein(1891-1957). In 1914, he first attended lectures given by Rudolf Steiner, the founder of anthroposophy. Consequently, he became a member of the Anthroposophical Society, and in 1920 was invited as an instructor to the newly established Waldorf School atStuttgart by Emil Molt (1876-1936).
And interesting to note...
Kolisko specialized in preventative medicine (sounds like my kind of guy!) and at Waldorf he worked with other teachers in creating a curriculum that focused on the spiritual and physical development of school children. He was instrumental in construction of several artistic therapies, such as anthroposophic music therapy and eurythmy.
