Birthday Celebration in a Waldorf Kindergarten

Birthdays are celebrated in a very special way at Great Oak School’s Kindergartens and Preschool. We just celebrated one of our kindergartener’s fifth birthday. The birthday child puts on a cape and a birthday crown and is led into the room by the teacher. They cross the rainbow bridge and sit in a circle. Then the teacher lights a candle for each year of her/his life and the visiting parents and family tell a story about a significant event that took place each year. The whole class sings a birthday song and then the child is presented with a gift of a beautiful animal knitted by the teacher and a book of drawings from the classmates.
