Discovering the insights of Rudolf Steiner and Waldorf education transformed my family life, starting when my children were 1-10 years old (they're 32-42 now!). Since that time I've written and updated You Are Your Child's First Teacher several times, helping tens of thousands of families. I've also worked closely with the development of the LifeWays approach for nurturing families and inspiring childcare, both as a founding board member and directing Rainbow Bridge LifeWays Program for 1-5 year olds in Boulder, CO from 2008-2012.

I want to personally invite you to take advantage of the countless articles, CDs, DVDs, and other resources contained on this site to nourish and inspire you in the adventure of parenting. And I'd love to hear from you either through CONTACT US or the BLOG!
Wishing you all the blessings,
Rahima Baldwin Dancy
