From: Donna Ashton

Dear homeschool parent,

Whether you are new to Waldorf or just thinking about how to make it work for you, chances are that you're on this page because you've considered Waldorf education, but weren't sure where to start.

Or, perhaps you've tried to give it a go but it didn’t work out "right", seemed too overwhelming or perhaps your confidence was not where it could be and you started thinking you couldn’t do it.

Or maybe you looked at all you had to do and thought you don't have the time for this and threw in the towel (before you even gave it a chance)…

If any of the above sound like you, or even if you simply are ready to go and want to get it right from the start, then I have an amazing opportunity for you, the likes of which you will never have seen before.

Hi, I'm Donna Ashton, long-time Waldorf homeschooling mom, parenting coach, advisor, and the founder of the The Waldorf Connection and The Waldorf Homeschool Expo .

When I created my online training website, The Waldorf Connection.com back in 2010, I set it up with one clear intention in mind: To help as many homeschooling families be as successful as possible.

Whether I was coaching moms how to homeschool, or helping families to create a thriving Waldorf Lifestyle, my goal was the same – I wanted to make it easier for them than it was for me.

After several years of Waldorf-inspired Homeschooling I realized that:

As a homeschool parent your goals are to nourish your child as a whole individual, give them confidence to express themselves in their unique way, nurture creativity problem solving and independent thinking, allow them to focus on what interests them, cultivate a love for learning while allowing them freedom to enjoy being a child.

A recently published report on Neuroeducation says that the use of music and the arts is way to build cortical circuits critical for success in writing, reading and mathematics (Hardiman, Magsamen, McKhann, & Eilber, 2009).

There is also a long history of research speaking to the importance of play as the primary source of learning for young children with continued supporting evidence from the brain sciences (Singer, Golinkoff, & Hirsh-Pasek, 2006). Given this growing awareness from the brain science on the beneficial aspects of holistic practices, it is not surprising that the Waldorf curriculum with its play-based kindergarten and arts-based curriculum is gaining attention - Abigail L. Larrison and Alan J. Daly University of California, San Diego and California State University at San Marcos.

This means that science is finally catching up with the practices that Waldorf has been embracing for almost 100 years!


Waldorf Homeschool "U", gives parents the opportunity to learn within a structured program that will guide but not overwhelm. It will clear away the confusion and replace it with understanding.. and give real life examples, results and ideas.

Waldorf Homeschool U

In this Comprehensive Training Course you will learn:

Step 1: Understanding What Waldorf Is & How That Affects Your Homeschooling

Let's start at the heart of what Waldorf is all about. You can’t really homeschool with this method without understanding the reasons and philosophy behind it all. (And it will make it much easier to explain to family & friends if YOU understand it) It’s not hard you just need to have it explained in a digestible way. We'll start with founder Rudolf Steiner's teachings on child development, the 4-bodies, the 12 senses and more.

POSTER: "The Four bodies handout"
HANDOUT: "Highlights of Waldorf Education"- an at-a-glance reference
CHECKLIST: "Homeschool Map & Calendar"- to track your progress and your goals
HANDOUT: "The Four Temperaments and How Understanding Your Child Makes All the Difference. Wonderful resource as your child develops to use as a reference to his/her temperament. Helps with communication and understanding as well as teaching.


Step 2: Becoming the Center for Your Child Through Inner Work

This class I will help get you centered so you can be the shining light that grounds your household. You need confidence to guide your family on this journey. Having boundaries in place will stop overwhelm and guilty “yes’s”. Balancing your life with your own self-care can be one of the hardest parts for us as moms. We want to give, give, give.. But we can’t be effective when we are empty. You will get some exercises for self-care and create a calendar of your personal self-care activities

POSTER: "The Four bodies handout"
HANDOUT: " “Bedtime Child Reflection"- 10-minute super exercise
WORKSHEET: "Steiners 6 Exercises Worksheet"- choose these when you need some centering
POSTER: "Meditation Self-Care Calendar"- to track your progress and goals


Step 3: Getting It All Done Without Exhaustion : Daily & Weekly Rhythm

This is the key to creating a lifestyle that feels relaxed, flowing and can breathe. I am a BIG advocate of getting your pillars of the day in place. It creates a consistency which frees you (mom) to be present and have fun with your child instead of feeling frazzled and a step behind. We will get your daily and weekly rhythm structure in place during this week.

TEMPLATE: "Bird Eye View of Your Daily & Weekly Rhythm"

HANDOUT: My Rhythm -Sample Day


Step 4: What Your Homeschool Needs: Set-up, Supplies & Tools

What does homeschooling actually look like? I will go through the schedule of my day and help you envision what yours can look like and how you can get there. We’ll discuss what types of curriculum are right for you and the 3 things to consider before choosing. Then we set up your home school space (you get to see pictures of mine!) and you get a list of must-have supplies.

HANDOUT: "Donna's Sample Homeschool Schedule"

Step 5: Creating Your Successful Plan: Monthly & Yearly Lessons

Planning can be the thing that makes or breaks your success with homeschooling. It can also be something you dread and put off. Not anymore! I show you how to build homeschooling into your life so it is a solid tool that guides your year and doesn't drag you down.

Step 6: Presenting the Material So Your Child Gets It

I will help you polish your current talents, guide you through learning new skills, and trouble shooting "hot spots".

Step 7: Don't Homeschool in Isolation: Ramping up Your Support & Community Reach

This can be the hardest part of homeschooling if you don't have an active Waldorf community at your fingertips. I will help you navigate the options, learn how to create your own group, and get your family on board (That's a BIG part as well) I will also give tips on living Waldorf in the 21st century and how not to isolate yourself from your friends and neighbors.
