3 What keeps the child healthy? Rudolf Steiner s salutogenesis approach to infant pedagogy Invitation What keeps the young child healthy? What does the salutogenesis approach to infant pedagogy look like in practice? How can it be further developed today? The Worldwide Initiative for Early Childhood Care, affiliated with the association of Waldorf kindergartens, is working on these questions. Together with the Medical Section at the Goetheanum it warmly invites educators, therapists, physicians, midwives and all who have young children in their care to attend this conference at the Goetheanum. Early care of children under three is gaining increasing importance in society at large and in crèches and nurseries. This is equally true of current Waldorf education research and practice. The way in which children s dignity is perceived and respected at this age is decisive for their further biography and thus for each person s individuality. We would like to work on three key questions with you: How can we support and nurture the child s autonomy and will to learn so that his inner personality can grow on the basis of trust and security (speech development, learning to communicate)? How should the young child s surroundings be structured? How can parents and educators self-education and self-development enable the child to experience himself both alone and in relationship with his surroundings (learning to think)? The conference will focus on healthy and healing child development, care of children in their home environment, in playgroups, institutions and daycare centers, and in medical, nursing and therapeutic practices. The organizers of this conference aim to set a benchmark for the young child s dignity. How can the child s environment be suitably fashioned to give him sufficient scope for developing his future potential to the greatest possible extent (movement development, learning to walk)? We look forward to seeing you and to our shared work and study. The conference languages are German and English. Where needed, and if agreed in good time in advance, simultaneous translation into other languages can be organized. Preparation group: Gabriele Claus, Marie Luise Compani, Claudia Grah-Wittich, Heike Hauptmeier, Brigitte Huisinga, Angelika Knabe, Angela Kranich, Birgit Lemke, Ina von Mackensen, Judith Naisar, Christiane Pfintzenmaier, Elke Runge, Gisela Weigle and Michaela Glöckler MD
4 Exhibitions and information stands At the conference there will be exhibitions and information stands on diverse current infant pedagogy concepts and further training courses etc. Toys and play equipment conceived by Pikler, Plackner and Hengstenberg will also be introduced and exhibited, with an opportunity to try them out. Offers, services etc. Breastfeeding-wrapping-nurturing Inge Heine Exhibition of play equipment The Wulfshagenerhütten parish community makes solid wood toys and play equipment designed by Emmi Pikler and Elfriede Hengstenberg. As manufacturers we also feel a responsibility for introducing use of these materials in childcare settings. In Dornach, an exhibition and workshop will give you the chance to find out more about this equipment and try it out. We will be on hand for further discussions. Martin Plackner has been making high-quality toys, play equipment and teaching aids since 1981 and sells these direct to kindergartens, schools and private customers at home and abroad. In collaboration with the Pikler Institute in Budapest, and users, a complete range of Pikler materials has been available for many years: from a diaper/nappy changing facility through to the triangular climbing frame. Herr Plackner will present an exhibition of this range during the Early Childhood Care conference.

5 Workshop groups 1. The young child in nature Many children are happier and more relaxed in natural surroundings. How can one better draw on the forces of nature in relation to the young child? Perception exercises, sharing of observations, experiences and anthroposophic insights, and the formulation of questions. If possible this dialog group will take place outdoors. Please bring suitable clothing. Marianne Tschan, Ringgenberg/CH Waldorf practitioner for many years, and has been teaching Waldorf kindergarten for the past 7 years in Ringgenberg/CH. She has initial experience with a parents and children forest education group, and teaches at the Academy for Anthroposophic Pedagogy in Dornach/CH 2. Education is nurture nurture is education The loving and caring nurture of the newborn child and infant creates the basis for physical health and resilience, and also for the capacity to cope constructively with crises. How can cleaning, dressing, movement and play be guided by parents and carers in a way that not only looks after the physical body but also promotes the child s independence, freedom and resilience? The workshop will engage with this question by drawing on many practical examples from work with infant playgroups, and will explore the transformation of life processes into soul-spiritual development processes. Inge Heine, Filderstadt/DE Healthcare practitioner and nurse, parent counsellor, breastfeeding counsellor (IBCLC), director of the playgroups organization for infants and parents ( Children s Play Parent s Learn ), mother of three children. Rolf Heine, Filderstadt/DE Healthcare practitioner and nurse, coordinator of the international forum for anthroposophic nursing 3. The human form as prerequisite for the development of walking, speaking and thinking The acquisition of an upright stance leads to a restructuring of human organs, which thus facilitate walking, speaking and thinking. We will concern ourselves with the anatomy of the upright stance and with the development of walking, speaking and thinking in the infant. Claudia McKeen, MD, Stuttgart/DE Specialist in general medicine, school and kindergarten doctor, teacher at the Waldorf kindergarten seminar in Stuttgart. 4. Towards the first I experience How do we accompany 2- and 3-year-olds on their journey from experiencing the world to the awakening of imaginative powers? This course aims to elaborate a fine and subtle sense for child development and what this means for forming and structuring the environment. We will practice this using case histories.
6 Angela Kranich, Pullach near Munich/DE Waldorf playgroup leader, teacher at the seminar for Waldorf pedagogy in Munich. Runs further training courses for playgroup leaders., English 5. How do we create trust and security for parents and children in the acclimatization period? We aim to engage with the following questions: How do I structure the acclimatization period in order to lay the ground for a good relationship of trust with parents? How do I make contact with the child? How do I structure the first few days? How do I recognize what the child and parents still need? Bernadette Lange, Hamburg/DE Curative educator, educational director of the daycare center at Haus Mignon, Hamburg. Birgitt Lembcke, Hamburg/DE Waldorf kindergarten teacher at a Waldorf daycare center in Hamburg. 6. How do I introduce moments of calm and reflection into the course of the day? Practical exercises for providing a warm, enclosing atmosphere for the body, soul and spirit of infants up to the age of 3. We will play very simple melodies on pentatonic children s lyres, to steep ourselves in a wordless experience. Please bring a pentatonic lyre with you. Inés Gámez de Rus, Spain Mother of 3 children, Waldorf educator, training in classical music, teacher of music in the mood of the fifth. Since 2000 she has been caring for infants up to the age of 3. From 2004 she has worked as childcare leader in Madrid (Spain). She is currently chair of the childminder s association in Spain Language: Spanish, German 7. The infant as will being The child does as he wills he is not available for another s will R. Steiner. From the impulse to be born through standing upright independently to the feared terrible twos we can experience the mighty workings of the child s will. The will to educate seems misplaced here! How do we meet children aged 0 to 3 in our childcare centers, and how do we structure our day so that the child is strengthened and supported in his independent learning? Angelika Knabe, Weimar/DE Educator, regional adviser and teacher in Germany and abroad, author Judith Naisar, Vienna/AT Waldorf kindergarten teacher and infant pedagogue based on Emmi Pikler. Has developed and now runs two playgroups at Waldorf Vienna West, Austria., English 8. Attachment and psychological development. Foundations, prevention and practice aspects A newborn child is entirely dependent on his surroundings. To fulfil his fundamental needs he relies on loving care from a person who tends him, to whom the baby develops a strong emotional attachment. Studies and early-years theorists suggest that successful early attachment is a precondition for the child s healthy development. Babies therefore need carers who perceive their needs
7 and can respond to them with sensitivity. The workshop will focus on characterizing attachment theory as currently understood, and on exploring how successful attachment can be nurtured Bettina Mehrtens Moerman, Zurich/CH Kindergarten teacher/playgroup leader at Sihlau Rudolf Steiner School, Adliswil. Director of the coordination center for early-years Rudolf Steiner education in Switzerland. Director for early-years education at the Academy for Anthroposophic Pedagogy (AfaP) and trainer on various parent education courses in Switzerland. Ulrike Poetter, Dornach/CH Pedagogue, theologian, adult educator; currently working as eurythmy therapist in curative education and specializing in autism. Lecturer in earlyyears education at the AfaP, Dornach. 9. Preparing the Way Salutogenesis in the Contemporary Care Environment The archetypal home is indisputably the best place to raise a child. Today this is not always possible with social/economic conditions dictating otherwise. While society s circumstances may have changed, the needs of the young child have not. By looking at the care environment the space in which we live and work, as a living organism - we prepare the way for the child who comes to us. It is the nuance of home in the archetypal sense, where aesthetics, order and rhythm, warmth of relationship and culture elevate the space into a living organism and it is this living organism which enfolds and encompasses the child (and adult) in a health-giving atmosphere. This I describe as salutogenesis in the contemporary care environment. In this working group we will look at the childcare environment and discuss caring for and maintaining this space as a living organism one which breaths life into all who enter it, thus enfolding, harmonizing and strengthening the child. Bernadette M. Raichle, UK/NZ Dip. Teaching Early Childhood, NZ; Wynstones Rudolf Steiner Kindergarten Training, Gloucester, UK; Director of Awhina Day Nursery and Kindergarten, Havelock North, NZ. Language: English 10. Relating attentively to babies and parents How do I handle culturally-determined disruption to babies and infants harmonious development (from Maxi Cosi to mobile)? How do we create good preconditions for attachment and play? How can we become more sensitive to children s subtle signals? Is it possible to create islands of health and healing for parents and babies? With many images and exercises drawn from daily practice. Maria Luisa Nüesch, Grabs/CH President of the Space for Play and Living association (based on the concept of Dr. Emmi Pikler), playgroup leader, eurythmist, author. Gives lectures and courses that focus on play and movement development.
8 11. Important transitions in early childhood We will focus on the acclimatization period in the childcare situation. What is its special significance? Transitional moments repeatedly occur in the child s life going to kindergarten, school etc. These first separations have deep and far-reaching effects we should be aware of if we are to manage them in a healthy way and accompany them professionally. Marie-Luise Compani, Mühltal/DE Gisela Weigle, Stuttgart/DE Lecturers at the Waldorf kindergarten seminar in Stuttgart, with special focus on the further training course Nurturing childhood forming the future and on the certificated further training courses Introduction to Waldorf education 12. Walking, speaking and thinking for an independent life Walking, speaking and thinking provide the basis for balanced and harmonious development at every conceivable level. By standing and walking we experience ourselves as autonomous beings. Speaking opens us to contact with our surroundings and gives us a sense of having a meaningful relationship with the material world, animals and people. Thinking gives us the opportunity to experience ourselves as a unique being. Aart van der Stel, Rotterdam/NL Anthroposophic physician working in several curative education settings in Rotterdam/NL, and in private practice. Language: English, Dutch 13. Madonnas as sources of inspiration What can we learn from the archetypal mother as regards our inner stance towards the child? What inner capacities do I need for engaging with the child and how can I develop and practice these? Art observations using slides, movement and discussion Please bring eurythmy shoes. Hanne Looij, Driebergen/NL Tutor on the infant pedagogy further training course, and art historian., Dutch, English 14. Babies who cry often and are restless rhythm as an effective aid Nowadays many babies cry and are grouchy from overtiredness. The cause is often an irregular sleeping and feeding rhythm. We will discuss a carefully conceived daily sequence, rhythm and nurturing care (e.g. swaddling). Each participant will need a doll and 2 cloths measuring 100 sq. cm Maria Blom, Utrecht/NL Anthroposophic nurse for children aged 0 to 4, author. For the past 15 years I have been collecting experiences with traditional swaddling methods (up to the age of 6 months). Language: Dutch, German 15. Practice questions on the conference theme, for pedagogues with experience in day-nursery work as developed by Pikler Exercises for documentation and self-reflection in the domains of movement, childcare and discussions with parents.
9 Birgit Krohmer, Freiburg/DE Educator, Waldorf teacher, eurythmy therapist. 16. Vaccination and prophylaxis: how do we make healthy decisions for the infant? The workshop will practice approaches to making sure decisions in relation to issues surrounding officially recommended vaccinations and medicinal prophylaxis in the first years. The guiding principle for all decisions is the child s wellbeing and his education in freedom. Michael Schnur MD, Dresden/DE Specialist in general medicine, Waldorf School doctor, holds regular information events on vaccination. 17. From perception to pedagogic impetus How can perception of the child be translated into pedagogic impetus through anthroposophic insights? How do we practice perception of largeheadedness, cosmic constitution etc. and develop educational measures from this? Madeleen Winkler, Gouda/NL Physician Language: English, German, Dutch 18. Language development in the infant and language awareness in the educator/carer We will examine language development in the infant, and the inner stance with which the carer/ educator speaks in the infant s proximity. We will consider how to use language artistically so that it can exert a strong, healthy effect on the infant s physical development. Monique Sinoo, Zeist/NL Waldorf class-teacher, leader of mother-and-child groups, for the past 4 years lecturer and tutor at the Helicon Waldorf seminar and the Heliant Waldorf infant seminar; mother of 4 children. Heleen Bom, Deventer/Zeist/NL Waldorf kindergarten teacher and active in teaching support. For the past three years has been a lecturer in early-years education at the Helicon Waldorf seminar; mother of four children. Language: English, German, Dutch 19. Creating now from yesterday and tomorrow Self-education as basis for infant pedagogy Exhaustion and stress engender bad moods; one s own inadequacy and fear cause bitterness. When courage fails, how do I manage always to act in the moment with full presence of mind? This workshop aims to engage with the anthroposophic path of schooling through discussion and artistic exercises, and to reflect on ways of overcoming the vagaries of daily life. Christiane Hewel, Dornach/CH Eurythmist, teacher, mother of two sons. Franziska Schmidt-von Nell, Dornach/CH Speech formation practitioner, responsible for the domain of family culture in the Social Sciences Section at the Goetheanum; mother of three sons.
10 20. What do children need in daycare provision in order to thrive? In childcare for children under three, the day is informed by the need for free play and movement, and for a nurturing contact and relationship with the carer. To give all children what they need, well-designed surroundings, a carefully planned daily rhythm and a harmonious and joyful atmosphere are all inextricable and essential for perceiving needs and fulfilling them. Christiane Pfitzenmaier, Frankfurt/DE Social pedagogue, Waldorf teacher; developing a day-care center in Niederursel. Brigitte Huisinga, Frankfurt/DE Social worker, Pikler pedagogu. 21. So what s going on now? Infants are often exposed in an unprotected way to relationship dynamics between adults and also form their powers of imitation in these situations. On the other hand, in loving devotion to children, adults usually very quickly encounter their own unconscious past, although equally unconsciously - they are together preparing the children s future at the same time. How could conscious awareness of past, present and future help to develop situational capacity for relationship and education? With the support of social and artistic exercises, and situational eurythmy, the aim is for participants to discover and develop new capacities in themselves. organization in Stuttgart, co-founder of the Institute for Situational Competence, trainer for organization development, professional and education coaching, social management etc. Noèmi Böken, Überlingen/DE Eurythmist, leader of mother-and-child groups and educational stage-performance projects, freelance work for eurythmy in Europe and Asia, and development of situational eurythmy., English 22.

11 23. Education is encounter How should we meet children, and how let them meet us? How do we create a space where they can develop their needs appropriately? In this course, together with participants, we aim to deepen our theme-related experiences through exercises and dialog. How does a young child s surroundings work on him, how do we create physical, psychological and spiritual space? How do prepared surroundings facilitate real encounter, and nurture dialog?

Parent work for early prevention salutogenesis from the very beginning Drawing on the concept of Early prevention in Havelhöhe we aim to explore the need for early prevention based on a holistic, anthroposophic approach, with attendant goals and possibilities of realization. What are the developmental needs of the child in the first few years? What wishes and needs do parents and carers/educators have? How can these work together harmoniously to create healthy surroundings for the young child? Prevention also means finding answers to questions that have not yet been asked! How do we provide such answers in our work with parents? How do we stimulate further questions? How do we enhance parents sensitivity to the child s needs so that they find guidance for subsequent decision-making processes?

12 25. Nurturing relationship through touching games Touching games give pleasure to the infant! Touching games create intimate encounter and closeness between carer and child. We structure touching games through mime, gestures and language. Which touching games for which child? How do I develop a relationship to the infant? What does my touch mean for the infant s head, hands, fingers and feet? Can I support the touching games through the way I use language? We will explore aspects of touching games and practice them. international Pikler conferences. Nancy Macalaster, New Hampshire/USA Director of Family Programs, Sophia s Hearth Family Center.

13 The workshop groups will aim to deepen and extend insights, and offer stimulus for your own practice and sense of what is important for the infant. Your own practical experiences will be a vital contribution to the further development and research of the theme. Important for all kindergarten teachers!
