It is expected that each course participant will be actively engaged with young children as a caregiver or early childhood teacher in a Waldorf setting.


Students must have technological ability, own or have access to a computer, and have access to an email account. Some coursework requires use of a computer, so students must have basic word processing ability to be able to complete all assignments. Communication between the Institute and program students generally takes place via email.

I understand that photos and video may be taken of me while in the program. I understand that is my responsibility to notify Sophia’s Hearth in writing if pictures of me should not be used for marketing materials.
