Rudolf Steiner College's 6th Annual Early Childhood Symposium

Rudolf Steiner beautifully described the archetypal development of the child from birth to seven. Set against this picture, we increasingly see children whose development does not quite match the archetype. These children tend to be ahead of themselves in some areas and behind in others. Their behavior can be challenging and perplexing. Over the course of this weekend symposium, through keynote addresses and workshops, we will examine challenges teachers meet in the incarnating child, looking at them in the context of the archetypal pictures. Join us for a weekend full of singing, puppetry, and exploration. Workshops will include storytelling, woodworking in the kindergarten, first grade readiness, coloring, and more. Information/Registration
