Foundation Studies at WSL

Rob Lanier, 7th/8th Grade Lead Teacher is offering an opportunity for a Foundations Study this year.

If you are thinking about Waldorf Training, this foundational work is an important prerequisite. If you are interested in learning more about anthroposophy and Rudolf Steiner, this is a great place to begin. If you want to know something about what makes WSL different from other schools this course of study would be very helpful.

We will meet alternating Thursday evenings from 6:00 – 7:30 pm via ZOOM. 

We will begin with Steiner’s book Theosophy.  This book was first published in 1910.  The version we will read was translated from German in 1961.  The introduction was written in 1994.

There is the reading of about 30+ pages between meetings (a calendar of which is included below), plus keeping your own journal of notes, drawings, and musings.

Look for a comfy place at home that will help you to embrace the pleasures of new ideas that inspire and challenge.

Seeking a Nanny

Transplant family in Goshen is seeking a natural-minded part-time Nanny.  Likely 3 days a week, 4-5 hour blocks (plus some flexibility for an occasional date night or weekend day).  
Currently family consists of Mom, Dad, and a 15-month-old boy……with another boy coming mid-Feb.
Dad currently works full-time and Mom very part-time both from home.
The shift would include nap time so ideally some light cleaning and food prep would happen during that time. The family would like someone that would be with them LONG TERM, and they do not want anyone that has young children they need to take care of at the same time.

Schedule a tour of the Waldorf School of Louisville today.
