Preface. In anticipation of the International Teachers Conference that will be held at the Goetheanum in Dornach during Easter of 2005, the conference planning group of the International Association of Waldorf Kindergartens felt the need for a comprehensive collection of quotations about children’s play from the collected works of Rudolf Steiner. The main theme of the conference will be children’s play in the broadest sense of the word. Imaginative play is greatly threatened in our time. Its tremendous significance for the young child and for all of later life will be explored at the conference, and it is hoped that the conference can serve as a focal point for intensive worldwide collaboration on this theme. It is our hope that the quotations collected in this book will stimulate the reader to explore the context in which they were given. This in turn might give rise to further insights. Familiarity with an anthroposophical image of the human being is a prerequisite for a full understanding of the quotations. At the beginning of this book, which is published both in German and English, the present situation of children’s play is described in an article by Joan Almon. It is my hope that this book will inspire readers and that the many important suggestions contained in it will enrich the daily work of those who carry the responsibility of caring for young children and working together with their parents. I am aware of the fact that a collection of quotations such as this one can never be complete. I would be grateful to receive suggestions for more quotations, which could be incorporated in the next edition. Freya Jaffke, February 2004. ...
