West Coast Institute welcomes you to our Summer Courses and into our Waldorf Teacher Training Program

We are excited to be looking towards the summer, and have creatively planned WCI summer teacher training programs and summer courses in an online format.

As we explore new ways of connecting, learning and being together, our individual and collective wellbeing is at the heart of our planning. Using technology to bridge the space between us in these times, so that we can continue to learn together, while acknowledging that we miss each other, is the work of building this bridge.

Our Grades Teacher Training Program is accepting new applicants up to June 15.

Course Participants: will join our teacher training program in relevant sessions online, and are asked to pay an auditing fee.

Application Deadline May 15, 2021

This two-year, part-time program is offered to those who are seeking to deepen their knowledge and understanding of what Waldorf education has to contribute to the healthy growth and development of the young child. Throughout the two years, studies in Anthroposophy and Waldorf education are interwoven with artistic and practical subjects.

Students will study books on Anthroposophy, Waldorf education and other relevant texts. The emphasis will be on understanding all aspects of child development. The artistic courses have a two-fold purpose; to enhance personal self-development and creativity, and to provide a basis for the work of the early childhood teacher. Courses in painting, eurythmy, speech, storytelling, singing, music, clay modelling, woodwork and Spacial Dynamics, amongst others, will be offered. A major aim of the training is to awaken independent thinking, ignite enthusiasm and foster creativity.
