Waldorf schools are inherently self-administered with decisions made on site by faculty, staff and trustees. This allows for a truly fluid educational experience; child-centered and responsive to the changing needs of the student. Our Waldorf certifications will train you in theory and methodology while simultaneously incorporating hands-on opportunities and experiential learning. This approach enhances your ability to make an immediate impact on the educational experience of your students. Become a part of this revolutionary shift in how educators are teaching, inspiring, and encouraging the next generation of learners.
