Daily Wonder: the safety net and launch pad all in one.
As Waldorf school teachers and administrators, we understand the demands of working in and running a Waldorf School. Often Waldorf schools rely on new teachers, without experience, to meet very high expectations with regards to curriculum delivery. We also know how demanding it is to rely on your experienced teachers to carry the weight of mentoring. As school leaders, it can offer you peace of mind to know that when your teachers use Daily Wonder as their foundation for planning, they have all the necessary ingredients in place to form a sophisticated, holistic, and engaging expression of the curriculum.
Daily Wonder is the most effective and cost efficient form of practical support for class teachers.
We appreciate and honour that a great deal of heart connection comes to the teacher through their own creative planning of the curriculum. We also know that this task is so monumental when you are a new teacher, that it can create the opposite effect, and cause heart forces to burn out. School leadership can confidently know that their new teachers are being held in the Waldorf approach by thorough daily plans, and at the same time, know that this gift of lesson plans provides more time for honing the skills of classroom management, observation and assessment of each student.
We know that Waldorf education can transform the world. We understand the magnitude of this calling. Daily Wonder is our gift to the Waldorf movement.
We feel passionate about supporting Waldorf teachers and schools around the world and we’re offering the gift of Daily Wonder as a solution to the demands of teacher support. We offer Waldorf class teachers a 20% discount on full year curriculum.

The Daily Wonder lesson plans offer a unique opportunity for main lesson teachers, particularly those new to Waldorf, to use as a support system for their daily as well as block planning. The block/unit plans are incredibly organised, concise, and have a wealth of ideas and resources for teachers to either use directly or be inspired by and adapt for their lessons. So much thinking has been done and prepared for you, from the curriculum requirements, the 'yellow book' Waldorf requirements to even the parent interactions! The Daily Wonder blocks and lesson plans are truly a gift for any aspiring or current Waldorf teacher.

Daily Wonder has been such an amazing guide, toolbox, and advisor for my teaching. The lesson plans are extremely easy to understand and bring to young learners. The activities provided are creative and exciting. With DailyWonder, I find more time to fine-tune my lessons to best meet my class's needs. The curriculum offers enough room to adapt to different scenarios (large groups, cross-age, one-on-one), while still offering clear explanations. I especially love the "resource hub" where I can find endless songs, verses, and games to help fill our hours with active learning. I would highly recommend Daily Wonder to anyone interested in Waldorf education.
