Early Childhood Part-Time Program – Now Starting July 26th

It is not too late to apply. Applications are still being accepted for the new cycle of Waldorf Early Childhood Part-Time. Please note that we are postponing the start date of the summer session to July 26 (previously June 14) to make it possible for more people to attend either in-person or online (with a combination of zoom, webinars and independent projects).

Registration is still open. The registration fee has been waived and no fees will be collected until the course takes place. Scholarship support is still available.

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


Part-Time Waldorf Teacher Program 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 will save $600 on tuition. 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.

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. But you're not risking anything by applying now, since full refunds will be issued in case we need to cancel due to government restrictions.
