Joyfull Parenting is a podcast for parents and caregivers who are ready to take their experiences with young children from surviving to thriving.

Today my guest is Katherine Scharff. Katherine is the Director of Teacher Education at Sophia’s Hearth. She is also a preschool and parent-child teacher at the Waldorf School of Saratoga, New York where she brought the first forrest kindergarten into being in the states. She is also a Simplicity Parenting Family Life Coach. She has completed the Sophia’s Hearth full Waldorf teacher education program and additional training in the Pikler approach.
