Discovering Through All Senses

A conversation with Kevin Manning, San Francisco.

In this personal conversation, Kevin shares his own journey about what made him send his three children to a Waldorf School and how their remarkable development made him become a Waldorf early childhood teacher himself. This interview is inspiring for all parents who are searching for the right nursery, kindergarten, or school for their own child.
