A weekend workshop on the foundations and fundamentals of Waldorf Education from early childhood through high school.
Open to all — and especially relevant for new and prospective Waldorf community members (teachers, parents, grandparents, staff, board members) and lovers of education — our popular Waldorf Weekend workshop is designed to provide an in-depth and experiential survey of the basis and the basics of Waldorf Education.
In addition to exploring the Waldorf curriculum from early childhood through high school, your workshop includes a discussion of Rudolf Steiner’s insights in human development and a look into the anthroposophical underpinnings of the Waldorf impulse. You’ll enjoy hands-on artistic activities such as music, movement, and drawing, and there’ll be plenty of time for questions and answers. Our Waldorf Weekends are a most memorable—and fun!—learning experience.
