    Linda Grant represents the Irish Steiner Kindergarten Association (ISKA) on the Board of WCCC.

    Linda runs an amazing outdoor parent & child group in Blessington called the Cuan Parent and Child Group (click here to visit their Facebook page)

    This summer, Linda is working in China; teacher training  and mentoring in new Steiner Early Childhood settings.

    Linda has found it to be an mutually enriching experience to date, she said:

    The growth of Steiner Waldorf Kindergartens and schools is a new development in education in China. Parents, educators and some state school teachers are passionately seeking a change from the current educational system. Some have found a connection between their ancient philosophies of Taoism, Chinese Medicine and the educational approach of Rudolf Steiner.

    It has been a valuable and inspiring experience for me and I now have new colleagues on the far side of the world!
