Project support

Are you interested in applying for support?

IASWECE offers pedagogical, practical and financial support for a number of projects that support the training and collaboration of Waldorf early childhood educators, including the following:

  • Introductory Lectures and Short Courses:
    • In countries where interest in Waldorf early childhood education starts to grow, introductory lectures and short courses help individuals to explore possibilities of growth before taking further steps and build a foundation for its development.
  • Long-term Training Courses:
    • When a deep interest in Waldorf Education has been solidly established, offering a long-term training course enables those who really want to commit to the development of Waldorf early childhood educational impulse in their region or country.
  • Mentoring:
    • The mentoring of early childhood teachers who have completed their training enables them to gain a professional foothold, through the support of a mentor with years of experience.
  • Country collaboration among colleagues or conferences:
    • The relationships among colleagues in a country or region are of utmost importance in collaborating on laying the foundations of the education and sharing common questions of interest and study.
