Please do not hesitate to contact the director Jan Ney Patterson at for more information and to discuss your situation. 

Part-Time Waldorf Teacher Application Deadline Extended 

The new deadline is June 30th, for the three-year part-time Professional Development for Waldorf Teachers program. This summer's session will be online, which means out of town participants can save on travel and accommodation. We are hoping to be able to offer subsequent sessions in-person. Registration fees are waived this year. And due to the Summer Festival component of the program being online this year, you can save $600 on tuition. Yes, that's right, this year's part-time Waldorf Teacher program fees will be only $5,100 CAD instead of the usual $5,700 CAD. So take advantage of this opportunity and register now.

Glencolton Farms Renewal Retreat July 12-18

This is one program that can't be moved online since the experience of being there is person is so much a part of what it's all about. We are still hoping that it will be possible to have this program go ahead in-person as scheduled.
