Written by Mat Riendeau – Urban Prairie Waldorf School teacher

I had mentioned at our Meet the Teacher event that I consider it my responsibility to help you articulate as clearly as possible what an Urban Prairie Waldorf education is and why you chose it for your child. Your answer may grow and change along with the development of your child and your understanding of the education, but I would like to offer resources that will inform our future dialogues and discussions. 


I would like to present two articles here for your consideration. When we meet up together in the fall, we will touch further on a number of points brought up in both.
