Directory of LifeWays Early Childhood Programs
Programs that incorporate the LifeWays approach to child care and parent education are spreading throughout North America! We encourage you to visit these providers and experience for yourself the many forms that LifeWays relationship-based programs can take.
- LifeWays Representative Programs enjoy the highest level of recognition. Their approach to working with children and families is based on concepts taught in the LifeWays® training with particular emphasis on Rudolf Steiner's research on human development. All primary caregivers in Representative Programs have completed the LifeWays® training or its equivalent or are currently enrolled in LifeWays® training.
- Other programs are listed alphabetically within each state or province. Where applicable, individuals to contact are noted as LifeWays Graduate or LifeWays Student.
- Additional listings are for Aligned Programs that have indicated an affinity with LifeWays® Principles and Practices, but who have not completed a LifeWays® Training.

“So I was just doing dishes and hanging out linens on a sunny, nippy morning. Ahhhhhhhhh.... I was reminded of how important such tasks are for so many reasons, but especially in balancing one's self/time in a computer-driven world. I just had a real awareness of that today as I was outside and honestly, I think just preparing inwardly for my parent-child classes next week and your workshop inspired me to take note and be careful! My body and spirit thank you for being such an inspiration even from afar! Back to home life!” Laura Olson
