A ground-breaking, yet refreshingly simple and wholesome approach to Steiner-based child care, written by two experts in the field. The LifeWays approach focuses on warm, loving relationships between children and the adults who care for them...something so essential but sorely at risk in modern child care."I am delighted that this book now exists and describes the LifeWays approach in such a living way. the content ranges from the moving descriptions of "Marie's" beautiful home care tothe legal and business questions of running a center. It even includes tips for advocating for change in child care." - Joan Almon, Executive Director, U.S. Alliance for Childhood Table of Contents Forewordby Joan Almon Introduction by Cynthia Aldinger 1: What is LifeWays Child Care? 2: The Many Faces of LifeWays 3: Other Facets of LifeWays 4: Home Away From Home .
