Summer Program 2022

Registration is now open for our in-person High School Teacher, Grades Teacher and Early Childhood Teacher Rejuvenation courses, as well as a public course for expectant parents!

Every summer, the Bay Area Center for Waldorf Teacher Training offers a number of professional development and renewal through the arts programs open to the greater Waldorf community and the public. If you would like to receive our newsletter with news and updates on our upcoming programs and events, please fill out the form on our Contact page.

Learn how to gently welcome your child into the world as a spiritual being, both before birth and in the first months of life. We will consider Rudolf Steiner’s picture of the path to birth, the spiritual makeup of the newborn, karma in the family, ways to support your child as a unique individual, and how to bring an enriching earthly experience to your baby. Prepare to become a parent through Spacial Dynamics principles and exercises: moving to increase health and to support your changing body and changing life.

She graduated from Emerson College with a certificate in Waldorf Teacher Training, specializing in Early Childhood Education, and has taught kindergarten, preschool, infants, and parent-child classes.

Come together! Be creative!

Reflect and digest the past year and be inspired for the year ahead.

Discover the key elements of the curriculum that will guide you and your class along the next stage of the Waldorf journey.

This summer, we are focusing on how to meet the impact that two years of pandemic have had upon our children and communities, and how the Waldorf approach and curriculum can support the older child’s well-being and confidence. We are excited to have Paolo Carini as a keynote presenter, who will bring many years of experience teaching sciences in a lively and inspiring way. Paolo will guide us in carrying the development of the sciences in the upper grades, helping us hone our sense for leading students in precise observation and clear thinking—while retaining a wonder for the world and the inventiveness of humankind. Teaching science so that it creates an enlivening and concrete relationship to the world strengthens the pre-adolescent by instilling deep interest and love for the world, as well as providing vital tools for engaging in scientific inquiry.

During the week, we will dig deep to find the guiding thoughts and pedagogical principles underlying the curriculum that enable us to support the developing child in each grade.

As we strive to broaden the Waldorf curriculum to be more diverse, more connected to the land and Indigenous cultures, and evolve towards a more global perspective, we will be joined via Zoom by Roman Vizcarra, co-founder of the Waldorf-inspired Kusi Kawsay Andean School in Pisac, Peru, to share the wisdom of his Indigenous Andean culture .

Our very experienced faculty collaborates closely in order to provide a rich and diverse range of approaches to the curriculum. Each grade track will have lessons and gain insights from all of the faculty members. Each morning will begin with choir and eurythmy. 

Faculty: Paolo Carini, Kristine Deason, Ramona Budrys, Roman Vizcarra, and Ken Smith.

This summer, we are focusing on how to meet the impact that two years of pandemic have had on our children and communities, and how the Waldorf approach and curriculum can support the child’s well-being and confidence. Nettie Fabrie and Wim Gottenbos will be our keynote presenters, bringing many years of experience to help us shape and deliver the math curriculum so that it is a source of healing and harmonizing strength in the children—and does not become a further source of anxiety and nervousness. They will develop the practice of math so that it provides an enlivening relationship to truth and a moral anchor in times of uncertainty and confusion.

The Bridge of Trust:

Teachers and Parents Working Together

As teachers of young children, we care also for their parents and families. These uncertain times increasingly call for courage, skills, and understanding that stretch our capacities. How do we build welcoming and supportive bridges between home and school? 

Join us this summer to discover and practice collaborative perspectives that rejuvenate our spirits. Morning presentations and discussions will embrace the challenges of boundary-making, communication, and diversity. There will be time for the arts—Spacial Dynamics, handwork, and singing games. 

Along with welcoming kindergarten and preschool teachers, we are delighted to include a focus on Parent-Child classes for Birth-to-Three practitioners. 

Faculty: Anjum Mir, Anna Rainville, and Kate Hammond.
