In response to economic realities, Christopherus has shrunk back. You will see that we have reconfigured our syllabuses/packages, combining a number of publications. We also now sell more PDFs. We no longer have a fully staffed office (or any proper office!) so we needed to cut back. This means we cannot sell separate components of the Full Curriculums. We also cannot sell PDFs of printed books or printed copies of those publications only available as PDFs.
We no longer sell books by other authors but have partnered with Waldorf Books who now sell them in a special section of their website dedicated to Christopherus.
You will see that we now have a 3-tiered pricing system. We hope this enables those who have financial struggles to afford our materials whilst also ensuring others can pay a higher amount, thus ensuring we become a viable business. Read more about this here.
Christopherus has enabled our family to thrive in new and unexpected ways
Before my husband and I had children, I taught as a Class Teacher at Green Meadow Waldorf School for five years. Once our two girls came along, I began working part-time at Sunbridge Institute as the Director of Education. Last spring, swift changes in New York State laws pertaining to vaccination requirements turned our world inside out practically overnight. As reluctant homeschool parents, the thing we did have going for us was familiarity and experience with Waldorf education. But after some time trying to navigate the terrain of homeschooling a second grader and a fifth grader, I recognized that I needed help and I turned to Christopherus.
After working with the curriculula for much of this school year, I can reflect that it helped me in so many practical ways. I completely trust the content, which is rooted in the ideas and ideals of anthroposophy and Waldorf education. The materials are extremely well-written, the selection of stories and suggested resources has saved me many hours of preparation, and the helpful advice and considerations for shaping time together allowed me to relax and enjoy the manifold gifts that come with homeschooling. Beyond the practical support, my experience with Christopherus has enabled our family to thrive in new and unexpected ways by changing something that seemed overwhelming into a rich experience for all of us.
