Events

The West Coast Institute for Studies in Anthroposophy, located in British Columbia, Canada, offers a 3-year, part time Waldorf Grades Teacher Training, a 2-year, part time Waldorf Early Childhood Educator Training and differing courses each summer for Waldorf teachers and others.

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.

Join us online this summer!
