Samford Valley Steiner School is running one Art of Education course in 2019.

The Art of early childhood Education

This is a part-time course of study for people working with young children in a school setting, whether teacher, assistant, support staff or administrator. The program intends to provide an introduction and overview of the principles that underpin Steiner/Waldorf early childhood education.

The course will be held on 8 weekends spread across the year, some during school term and some during non-term time. The programme begins on Saturday mornings at 9am to 5.30pm and finishes on Sunday at 5.30pm. There will be lectures related to the Anthroposophical perspective of human nature, early childhood development, as well as the elements of early childhood pedagogy. Artistic activities include singing, story-telling, puppetry, and Morning Circle. Handwork for the educator includes sewing, felting, knitting and puppet- and toy-making.
