Machinery Equipment
The machines and the equipment are produced specially for children, and their security tests are done. The works that are made with wooden are made for all of the emotions, and these are the best examples of the practical training. Our schools’ main target, these schools endeavor to grow up children who can create differences far away from our offerings in the world that is improving always, is to grow up the individuals who produce something.
Safe Machinery;
These saws produced in UNIMAT designed for children. The short pulses of the knife that are created by vibration let them to the precision cutting and don’t harm the skin. This is the ideal machine for schools and ateliers. There is no injury risk thanks to its forming that children don’t harm.

Coffee Break
. Focusing on the Waldorf Philosophy;
It is argued that children’s’ school age is determined according to the calendar is the wrong way, and individual improvement is more important. Children should process an education term that is nested with nature, rhythmic and is in daily life. This term should not be with memorization and oppression. There are noting, being unsuccessful of the children and homework system in order to eliminate this oppression.
In the program that includes garden times, it is aimed to consisting of children’s being nested with nature, the nature consciousness and love. Besides, the classroom ambiance is regulated as appropriate for the aesthetic and ordered senses of the children. According to Steiner, children are extremely sensitive to their environment and they have information about this environment by using their whole senses. Therefore, all of the walls’, furniture’s, materials’ colors are rather important. Simple colors are preferred. The furniture that is made with natural and sturdy materials are used.
It is provided that children take on some duties in order to improve the children’s acting skills and to help the children’s taking responsibility. For example; repairing, preparing snacks, cleaning the tables, caring for flowers…etc. Teachers never enforce them while they are doing these tasks, they give opportunity them to their attending to work-sharing in the classroom with their own choices. Waldorf teachers internalize these three emotions: respect, enthusiasm, and safety. The teacher should approach children with respect, let them learn in their own way and the quality of education is more important than its rapidity. Another important point in this approach is teachers’ creating an ambiance that is away from stress, and this ambiance should support the children’s learning. The teachers create a possibility that supports children’s learning by experiencing and living on his own.
The relationship between Woodcrafting For Children and the Waldorf Approach
This education activity aims to children ’s social, emotional, spiritual, ethic and physical improvement. According to Steiner, every child has a concrete potential. When an appropriate ambiance is created, this potential, this potential appears. However, we should not hurry up to come up these potentials.
