Early Childhood Certification Dates and Locations


The LifeWays Early Childhood Certification Program offers 28 days of learning, inspiration and community. It provides an island of respite from your day-to-day rushed-life routine, in surroundings that foster inner transformation and the application of new knowledge and skills.

Trainings are offered throughout North America: click on the locations and dates below that seem most convenient for you. Then read about admissions and fees in How to Apply. We would love to send you an information/ application packet in the mail to share with your family or colleagues.

Note – if you are unable to attend one or more training dates at your desired location it is possible to make up that session at a different location. In addition, some programs offer rolling admission—contact the Director to inquire about starting mid-course if the dates for the initial sessions have passed.
