Teacher Training Programs

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.

Join us online this summer!

Waldorf Grades Teacher Training

NEXT CYCLE BEGINS – Summer 2021

This three-year, part-time program of professional Waldorf teacher education is offered to those who are seeking to teach out of an understanding of Waldorf Education and what it can contribute to children today. Throughout the three 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 class teacher. Courses in painting, eurythmy, speech and drama, storytelling, singing, music, clay modeling, 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.
