Course Overview

Not all of us were lucky enough to have first hand experience of Steiner education. However, if your children are now on this journey you might have a curiosity to understand where they’re at and where they’re heading. That’s why we invite you to follow this beautiful journey and to enjoy some of it as well.

Sydney’s Rudolf Steiner College has been providing adult education since 1980. Our 2020 course, the Foundation in Rudolf Steiner Education (DE02) will provide parents with a living, philosophical understanding of Anthroposophy, Steiner education and an immersive experience of the creative arts, including art, drama and music. No experience required.

All attendees will receive reading material sent online and a statement of attendance.
