Bread making at Waldorf School at Moraine Farm is a much-loved activity beginning with children as young as two years old. Waldorf schools around the world use different bread recipes.
At Waldorf School at Moraine Farm, we have been making huckabuck bread since the first days of school, now 30 plus years ago!
From Parent and Child through Kindergarten, we create a nurturing home-like environment in our classrooms. Starting in Nursery, children love to do practical work such as making bread, chopping vegetables for their lunch soup, caring for the garden, working on simple sewing projects, painting, building forts and trails. Each day of the week has a purposeful activity. The teachers model tasks and the children learn through imitation, happily taking up this work. Learning through imitation and play are important elements of our school days.
