EC05 Foundations of Early Childhood (Distance)

200 indicative hours

This course is an integrated study of Steiner’s picture of child development with artistic and craft experiences based on the rhythm of the year. It is a most inspiring course whether you are embarking on the path to become a Rudolf Steiner Early Childhood teacher or whether you are a carer, or involved with home-based child care or play groups. It is similar in approach to EC01 the Foundations Course based in Sydney. However, the opportunity to hear lectures and participate in workshops occur in TWO Residentials held at Harmony in the Southern Highlands of NSW in school holidays. The residential intensive segments are a vital and compulsory part of this course.

However, this course also gives students the opportunity to study Anthroposophy, Life Phases, Eurythmy, Painting and Drawing which when completed fulfil the 100 hours of approved Anthroposophical study required for full certification. EC02 is then the next study on the journey to become a qualified Steiner early childhood teacher. Assignments are an important part of this study in order to gain the most from the Distance approach but are optional if there is no intention to continue with the pathway to become a Steiner Early Childhood teacher.
