Houses, castles, neighbors, kittens, pirates, boat captains, firefighters, chefs, mothers, fathers, babies, and most of all, good friends...These are the worlds I enter when I spend the morning in Terri's Morning Garden; behind the ironing board, quietly ironing, watching and helping; tying silk capes and pirate hats, readjusting "the boat" made out of wooden trestles, modeling a calming, warming activity that children rarely see anymore while I observe happy, free children being completely themselves in a world so perfectly suited to them.
This is Terri's Morning Garden; a truly magical place; where all the children are learning to be a part of the social world while, at the same time, building their bodies and minds with physical activity, imaginative play and wholesome, nutritious food. Every aspect of the Waldorf day is planned with the children's needs in mind; everything is done for a reason.
The children will carry these beautiful experiences and memories with them always.
In Gratitude to what a Waldorf Morning Garden gave to my daughter many years ago...and to your children.
