Welcome to MillennialChild.com
We hope to serve as a resource for anyone interested in educating children in the twenty-first century. Our foundations lie in Waldorf education, which in turn arises out of Anthroposophy, a worldview promulgated by Rudolf Steiner. Our web site grows out of the wish to share as much about Waldorf education’s roots and fruits as we can with the widest possible audience. We hope that millennialchild.com is helpful to all educators and parents who visit it. To view a biography of Eugene Schwartz, the site’s creator, click here.

To Bee or Not to Bee . . . .
For decades, Stockmar Wax Crayons -- usually just called "beeswax crayons" -- have been the gold standard of Waldorf drawing supplies. The only problem is that there is hardly any beeswax in Stockmar crayons, and a very high proportion of petroleum-based additives. Filana, an American startup, is challenging Stockmar's primacy with its own line of organic beeswax crayons, and Eugene Schwartz has been the first to get to compare the two products.
