JOYFUL TODDLERS: Faith Collins (who also is my daughter and a trained LifeWays teacher) offers an inspired blog and teleclasses for parents and childcare providers. This multi-media approach to sharing her practical and lively insights can give you the tools you need to enjoy the toddlers and preschoolers in your life.
LifeWays North America has developed a revolutionary model for childcare and early learning, based on the insights of Rudolf Steiner and contemporary child development specialists. Because LifeWays takes home as the model for mixed-age, relationship-based care, it's training program and workshops can nurture parents as well as transform childcare settings. If you are home with young children or work with them professionally, LifeWays programs can be the "next step" after reading First Teacher. They meet part-time in locations throughout the US and in Vancouver, BC and are attended by a mix of parents, childcare providers and early childhood teachers. LifeWays also offers a quarterly e-newsletter and other resources. Be sure to check out their "Ten Principles," "Trainings" page and Directory of LifeWays affiliated and representative programs near you.
