LifeWays offers two levels of trainings that can open new opportunities for you—both professionally and personally:
LifeWays Early Childhood Certification is designed for both parents and professionals.

There is also guided study with a mentor between sessions. LifeWays graduates are using what they have learned
- With their own families
- In LifeWays childcare and in-home programs
- In schools as assistant teachers, or offering parent-child, after-school and childcare programs.
LifeWays Continuation Program for Early Childhood Teaching prepares graduates of the Certification Program to teach kindergarten or preschool in a Public Waldorf or private school setting. The additional 240 in-class hours are offered at Kimberton Waldorf School in Pennsylvania, and there is also mentored teaching under an experience teacher.
