Foundations and Fundamentals of Waldorf Education from Early Childhood through High School
Our popular Waldorf Weekend workshop is designed to provide an in-depth and experiential survey of the basis and the basics of Waldorf Education. Open to all, it is especially relevant for new and prospective Waldorf community members (teachers, parents, grandparents, staff, board members) and lovers of education.
In addition to exploring the Waldorf curriculum from early childhood through high school, this 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.
