- About Us
This specialization in RSC's Waldorf Teacher Education Program focuses on preparing teachers to not only guide children through the main lesson blocks, but also to foster a genuine love of learning that each child will carry for a lifetime. The curriculum includes an overview, examples and resources for lesson blocks in each of the eight grades, as well as two, month-long practicums in which students are able to learn side-by-side with an experienced teacher.
The specialization in elementary grades will not only give you the skills necessary to meet the developmental and academic needs of children in all eight grades, but also the understanding to grasp and manage the great transitions that take place throughout this time. In addition to studies of child development, Waldorf elementary grades training includes pedagogy, methodology, creative integration of the arts, and practical aspects such as classroom management. When you graduate, your Diploma will be recognized at Waldorf schools worldwide.
Graduate statistics and information such as enrollment, graduation and employment of graduates for each of our programs can be found at BPPE Report and School Performance Fact Sheets.
