I just sent for a book called Simplicity Parenting that I hope will help streamline the environment.
I had hoped others with more experience with Waldorf in their program would chime in... but I will jump in first.

In terms of books these are my favorite Waldorf based books:

You Are Your Child's First Teacher
https://www.amazon.com/Your-Childs-F...+first+teacher

Beyond the Rainbow Bridge
https://www.amazon.com/Beyond-Rainbo...4A64SPR19G8X7R

Heaven on Earth
https://www.amazon.com/Heaven-Earth-...D6E8DGRAGJ66G2

Seven Times the Sun
https://www.amazon.com/Seven-Times-S...JWGKSVJW2356K2

The Creative Family
https://www.amazon.com/Creative-Fami...sap_bc?ie=UTF8

Other Resources

150+ Screen-Free Activities for Kids: The Very Best and Easiest Playtime Activities
https://www.amazon.com/150-Screen-Fr...6KYDSATMJGT6FN
This is not Waldorf but when you go screen free it's nice to know what to do when you run out of inspiration.

The Artful Parent Blog
http://artfulparent.com/
Again not Waldorf but helpful.

Mother.com Forums has a Waldorf section that is AMAZING!

Little Acorn Learning has a Kindergarten Waldorf Curriculum since academics are not heavy in Kinder I would assume you could adjust this for preschool age
http://littleacornlearning.com/

This is a nice home based child care inspired by Waldorf:

A Child's Garden of Thyme uses LifeWays as her curric. which you can find here: http://lifewaysnorthamerica.org/

If you visit here: http://www.waldorfearlychildhood.org/directory.php you will find a number of programs many home based.
