Waldorf schools provide a detailed, richly artistic curriculum that responds to and enhances the child’s developmental phases, from early childhood through high school.  However, what are the phases of childhood?  How can the needs of the child be addressed by parents and educators alike?  Join us at the Madison Waldorf School on Thursday, January 12 at 7pm, for an informative talk with Corinne Lorian on the developing child. Corinne Lorian is a master Waldorf teacher, with experience in both the early childhood and grade school.  Currently a grades teacher at Prairie Hill Waldorf School, Corinne was also a founding teacher at Tamarack Waldorf School.  She has also taught at The Rudolf Steiner School of Ann Arbor and other schools.
