Waldorf preschool ~ singing through the day

Waldorf kindy chair

Ruby comes home singing.

In fact, she tells me that ‘singing is what we do all day mum

And this is one of the things we love about her Waldorf preschool.


As they knead the bread, they sing. As they play, they sing.

And during circle time, they sing and they sing.

And on her days at home with me, she breaks into song. With little movements and actions. And such joy!

It is lovely to see these glimpses of what her days at her Waldorf preschool are like.

She sings songs that welcome the day. She sings to give thanks for the meals she enjoys.

There are songs for going outside to play. There are songs for tidying up.

And they sing to say goodbye.

And as I listen, I realise, at home we sing through our day too.

Sometimes made up songs, sometimes songs we learnt at playgroup.

And now, songs Ruby teaches me.

Blessings, Kelly

    So lovely!
    I used to sing a lot when my kids were little, and my kids always used to come home from kinder (preschool) singing too, so I was really surprised when my big boys teacher said he never, ever sang at kinder! But he was taking it all in though, and enjoying it, as he’d come home and teach me all the new songs he had learned!

    We don’t sing nearly enough at home. You’ve inspired me to make changes starting tomorrow. Singing is beautiful.

    My daughter sings all day long too. Sometimes I wonder where she has learned the song she is singing and then i realise she is simply making up the words to suit her thoughts. I love the little glimpse into her mind. Thank you for sharing 🙂
