FAQ

Do the Guides use a Waldorf/Steiner Curriculum?

Although they are inspired by Waldorf philosophy and education they also borrow concepts from Montessori, Forest Schools, Reggio Emilia and other alternative education concepts.

What is the difference between The Guides from the Southern and Northern Hemisphere?

The seasons and festivals are flipped depending on which hemisphere you live in. For example, Easter activities can be found in the Southern Hemisphere Autumn Guide and in the Northern Hemisphere Spring Guide, while Christmas activities are found in the Southern Hemisphere Summer Guide and in the Northern Hemisphere Winter Guide. Some of the crafts and stories are also slightly different in order to suit the hemisphere you live in.

How do I use and personalize the Whole Family Rhythms Guides?

I encourage you to look at your own lives, schedules and activities and to personalize your Daily Rhythm accordingly. Perhaps you want to begin with spending only one or two days a week working on a focused activity like watercolour painting or beeswax modeling.

The Daily Rhythm is not set in stone, with every Guide, you will receive an editable PDF version of the Daily Rhythm so that can do you own editing and planning. You can spread the activities out over a longer period of time, do the crafts or baking on the weekend with the entire family or skip over parts of the rhythm to entirely to suit your needs. The timing of activities is also flexible. I have tried to keep school pick-up times in mind as well as older children in the home, but perhaps you have a younger infant and naptimes are the perfect opportunity for you and your older toddler to share an hour together. Every family will have a slightly different rhythm that works for them.

What ages are the Guides for?

The Guides are ideally for children ages 2-6 but younger and older siblings have used them with joy too! You can also click here to view a sample week from each of the four Seasonal Guides.

Where can I buy the Guides in Print?

You can purchase the 4 Seasonal Guides (for the Northern Hemipshere only) from The Paper Pipit Shop. They ship internationally.
