"What would you tell someone thinking of starting this course?"

  • Fantastic value for the costs

  • Fantastic quality of teaching and support

"The NESWEC course is really excellently put together. The calibre of the tutors is very high. I can thoroughly recommend this course for anyone in a Steiner setting who wants to know more."

Rebecca Mihill


"The first four months of the course have been hard work but what a lot I have gained! I have enjoyed the balance during weekend sessions between the practical (ring-times, singing, handcraft), the theoretical ideas that underpin kindergarten practice and the impetus for self-development.

I have felt supported in my studies by excellent seminars and the wealth of kindergarten experience brought by our tutors, as well as by the other students. It has been a wonderful opportunity for learning in the widest sense of the word."

"This course is enriching my life and making so many things make sense. I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn in such a 'non imposing' way. It is such a welcome contrast to previous academic experiences. I feel like I am really in charge of my own learning and I am enjoying that process."

"The whole structure and rhythm of the course is very well thought out and delivered. It's a good balance of intellectual and creative stuff"
