The intention behind the Workshop
The Waldorf curriculum is founded on Steiner’s developmental picture of the human being, and much has been created in this direction over the last 100 years particularly in the early childhood and primary school domains. In the present uncertain situation with the pandemic, we have split the program into two parts, the first an intensive session with Dr. Lakshmi Prasanna and Dr. Tim Dunn, from the 5th to 7th Jan 2021. This will be followed by another one with Jamie York, Marita Tulloch and Sven Saar, from the 13th to 15th Jan 2021. The first session will take you through a journey of child development from Kindergarten to Grade 12 and relate it to the the science and humanities main lessons, in Wadorf schools. The next session will focus on the Math, Geography & Movement curriculum/pedagogy, in primary and high school and relate it to the principles that underpin Steiner education.
This two part program will enable you explore how Waldorf education serves this transition - to prepare children to grow into responsible, thinking adults.
Teachers, parents, educators and anyone interested in working with children from Kindergarten to High school are welcome to participate in these workshops.
