Waldorf SB Stories

Understanding the 9 Year Old Child, by 3rd Grade Class teacher Heather Nelson

Understanding the 9 Year Old Child, by 3rd Grade Class teacher Heather Nelson The nine-year-old is in the middle between the world of early childhood and the world of adolescence. Prior to age six or seven, children live and learn through imitation. They experience a harmonious resonance between themselves and the world. Around the ninth birthday, however, the child encounters a tinge of self-consciousness, and with it a new sense of separateness from the world around them.
Welcome Back! From our Board of Trustees
