Steiner Early Childhood Teaching
The role of the imagination in learning is strongly emphasised in Steiner schools and the curriculum reflects the Steiner philosophy that there are 7-year developmental stages in childhood, each having their own learning requirements.
This specialty equips you with the skills, knowledge and attitudes you need to be an effective teacher in a Steiner setting.
What this specialty covers
