available for parents interested in expanding or deepening their understanding of the background and underlying principles of Waldorf education. EduCareDo is a volunteer-run organization, which offers self-directed, distance-learning courses based on the principal ideas of Rudolf Steiner.

The Foundation Course includes readings, experiments, exercises, and activities, including basic exercises towards inner development, comprising 26 lessons, which are sent via email every two weeks over 12 months, with each lesson building on the last. Tutors are provided for each participant and are available for support and feedback, along with a facilitated online study group (begins in September 2020) which will meet every month.

Lesson topics include: Understanding, Caring for and Developing the Human Senses; Working with Bodily Constitutions and Temperments; Inner Development; Health and Nutrition; and much more. All parents and teachers who enroll in the Foundation Course using the discount code WALDORF before September will pay a reduced fee of $350AUD (~$250USD) for the 26 lesson, year-long course. In addition, a portion of the proceeds from each enrollment will be used to support parents and teachers that are interested in enrolling but cannot afford the course fee.

Find out more about the course and enroll on our website (use the standard enrollment option and the discount code WALDORF). You can also explore our subject courses on inner development, biodynamic agriculture and nutrition, speech and drama as living arts, transforming society, and painting and color. Contact EduCareDo with any questions.
