Early Childhood Mixed-Age Classes
The task of the kindergarten teacher is to adapt the practical activities of daily life so that they are suitable for the child’s imitation through play . . . . The activities of children in kindergarten must be derived directly from life itself rather than being “thought out” by the intellectualized culture of adults. In the kindergarten, the most important thing is to give children the opportunity to directly imitate life itself.
—Rudolf Steiner, The Child’s Changing Consciousness
