Options For Training

Full-time programs provide students with opportunities for personal development and extensive knowledge of the anthroposophical foundations of Waldorf Education.

Part-time programs range in length from two to four years and offer students more time between sessions to digest and practice what they are learning.

Practitioner-based programs blend course work with ongoing experiences working with children in Waldorf settings and being mentored by experienced Waldorf educators.

Introductory courses focus on basic knowledge and skills prior to undertaking a full training course.
