Violence of any kind, early in life – either experienced or observed – can have long-lasting and detrimental impacts on children.  Research has shown that the early years in a child’s life—while the human brain is forming—represent a critically important window of opportunity to develop a child’s full potential and shape key academic, social, and cognitive skills that determine a child’s success in school and in life.  A nurturing environment in the early years can modify an individual’s brain development and the ability to deal with stressful conditions later in life.  Join us March 16 for an afternoon to learn how the well-being of young Jewish, Muslim and Christian children growing up in the Middle East can benefit from the Waldorf approach to early childhood education.
This event is for adults only.
