To choose another education system, you must go through a thorough understanding and reflection. You need to understand another educational philosophy, know your expectations for education, and your expectations for your children. You also need to think about why you want to choose another education system. Knowing the expectations match the chosen educational philosophy or not. Only after a complete understanding and reflection then a responsible and firm decision can be made.
Why Waldorf education? Does Waldorf education philosophy match your expectations? On December 1, 2016, CommonWealth Education Media and Publishing website published an article titled "Senior Waldorf Teacher Answers the 9 Most Wanted Questions Parents Want to Know". The content is brief and to the point. It can help you to further understand the core concepts and characteristics of Waldorf education and guide you to further think about "why?" The article talks about how to choose a school. It relies on parents to know the school in many ways. In addition to the introduction on Facebook and the website, through actual conversation and interaction, it can improve the mutual understanding. This is also one of the purposes of our enrollment seminar and interview. We are looking forward to your participation in the enrollment seminar and get to know Taipei Steiner closely.
The core of the Taipei Steiner Education Association (hereinafter referred to as the Association), is to practice early childhood education services, school-age education, and Waldorf education teacher training based on the Waldorf education concept, so as to promote Waldorf education in Taipei. In order to implement the vision of the association - "to make Waldorf education take root downward, spread branches upward, and inspire people's inner strength to practice truth, goodness and kindness".
