Waldorf, Montessori Venn Diagram

Journal Post Featured Image (3)

If you’re new to Waldorf education and exploring the different education styles available to draw from, you have likely also come across Montessori education and maybe even Charlotte Mason and the Reggio Emilia Approach.

Last week on my Instagram I shared this Venn diagram comparing Montessori and Waldorf early childhood pedagogy.

What do you think? Do you draw methods and learning techniques from both?

Are you drawn to one more than the other, and why?

Please feel free to join the conversation over on my Instagram post as there are many interesting convos budding, or hit reply and let me know.

Meagan provides resources, support and information to parents who are looking for a bridge to cross between their unique family life and their children’s (often but not always) Waldorf schools.
