The RSCT's Waldorf Childcare Enterprise Director, Karen Weyler, has been hard at work, getting ready for the opening of the first "Star Seedlings Family and Child Care Centre" in Guelph in the spring of 2019. The house which the new centre will inhabit, has been previously used as a childcare centre, which should simplify compliance and approvals.
However, as you can see from the interior photos above, it's going to need some loving work to make it into a "Waldorf" childcare centre. Karen has sent the following list of things that are needed to get the new centre up and running for the spring of 2019.
If you have any of these items and you're willing to donate them to the Star Seedlings, please contact Karen directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
