My daughter has attended Shining Mountain Waldorf School in Boulder, Colorado, since she was three years old. The school and educational program shares my values of love for nature and the outdoors.

I recently had the opportunity to interview Jane Zeender, Director of the school, about direct-experience learning in natural settings. Jane discusses how Waldorf Kindergarten programs can impact children’s health and happiness.
This interview gave me goose bumps!
