Course Description:

LifeWays trains teachers and parents to create center-based and in-home child care.  Mixed-age, family-style groupings and the same care providers year after year support the relationship-based care that children need.  Life is the curriculum for young children, including practical life skills demonstrated in Domestic Activity, Nurturing Care, Creative Exploration and Social Ability.  Participants in this class learn the tools needed to create a home-like setting and how to become models of lifelong learning to provide what the children need in their early years of growth.

Based on the profound research of Dr.  Rudolf Steiner, founder of Waldorf education, and other leading developmental experts, LifeWays courses offer the opportunity to enter deeply into the Living Arts.  LifeWays is in alignment with the Alliance for Childhood and the Waldorf Early Childhood Association of North America, and is a member of the National Association for the Education of Young Children and the National Association for Family Child Care.

Session 4. follows the foundations laid in Session 1, the relationships established in Session 2 and the professional awareness developed in Session 3, and introduces the leadership capacities unique to a LifeWays educator.  Participants are expanding child observation and adult modeling skills, developing flexibility with colleagues and parents, and learning the components of managing a LifeWays Center.
