Open to all, but especially relevant for current, new, and prospective members of Waldorf communities, including teachers, parents, grandparents, staff, and board members, our popular Waldorf Weekends are designed to provide an in-depth and experiential survey of the foundations and fundamentals of Waldorf Education.
In addition to exploring the Waldorf curriculum, your workshop will include 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.
Participants continuing on to another Summer Series offering will leave with a more solid foundation with which to begin their next Sunbridge course. All participants will leave with a greater appreciation for Waldorf Education, and a most memorable—and fun!—learning experience.
