WECAN hosts an annual conference each February in Spring Valley, New York, and sponsors regional conferences throughout North America.

Our 2019 conference speaker will be Dr. Adam Blanning, who will discuss how early childhood development lays the foundations for adult morality. Details will be available soon!

Thank you to all who made the 2018 WECAN Early Childhood Educators Conference possible!


Each year, the WECAN February conference held in Spring Valley, New York, draws over 350 Waldorf early childhood educators to further their professional development, strengthen connections with colleagues, deepen the anthroposophical basis of the Waldorf early childhood work, and find artistic and social refreshment. Threefold Educational Center and Green Meadow Waldorf School provide the facilities for the annual conference.

We are grateful to our sponsors, supporters, and individual donors for their support.
