Introduction to Waldorf Early Childhood Education: An Immersion in the World of the Waldorf Nursery / Kindergarten

Sunday, June 26, 2016 - Friday, July 1, 2016

ECSummer Series 2016 course with instructor Lisa Miccio of Green Meadow Waldorf School

Open to everyone, including current and prospective early childhood educators, parents, grandparents, and caregivers

Join us on a wondrous journey!  This comprehensive course—a perennial Sunbridge summer favorite—will help you explore the essential elements of Waldorf early childhood education.

Through the guidance of a highly experienced Waldorf early childhood educator, you will delve into child development; learn about rhythms, transitions, and the cycle of the year; explore the importance of play; examine the inner development of the teacher; experience lessons in handwork, art, movement, and circle time activities; and develop a true practical understanding of Waldorf early childhood education.

~ The course was amazing!

~ Lisa really brought a lot of the questions that came up back to her experience and this was so valuable to listen to. She is gentle and calm and you can tell really loves teaching this material.

~ If there is a better example of a Waldorf teacher, I would not believe it! Lisa embodied the ideals.
