Waldorf Pedagogy views the human being as participant and creator of his own culture. In this sense, all subjects and the whole school life is permeated with artistic activities, in which students, teachers and parents take part in together. The practical and handmade elements are valued. We support the self-made and thus more conscious production of objects rather than the consumption of ready made industrial products. Given that, the students produce their own bags and pencil cases, make their own useful wood pieces and learn gardening, cooking and how to make bread. The application of these and many other activities follow the orientations of the Ministry of Education (MEC) concerning school curriculums.
Pointed out by UNESCO as an example for a pedagogy which is capable of facing the present’s difficulties with the educacional process, especially when it comes to cultural differences, the school works on all the determinative factors for a social quality education, for instance a democratic management, didactic-pedagogical material and good formation of teachers. As a result, the school’s pedagogy entirely fulfills the goals of MEC’s Department of Politics and Early Childhood Education.
Today, there are Waldorf Schools all around the world, building a growing independent education network. The Federação das Escolas Waldorf in Brazil is the entity responsible for all Waldorf Schools in the country. One of its goals is the integration of this pedagogy into the Brazilian society.
