Australian Association for Rudolf Steiner Early Childhood Education

Freeing the Spirit of Childhood

The Australian Association for Rudolf Steiner Early Childhood Education (SECA) is part of an international movement dedicated to the protection, development and strengthening of Steiner/Waldorf Early Childhood care and education of the child from the developmental stages of pre birth to the age of seven.

This website is a SECA funded resource. Not only professional educators, but also anyone who lives with, or cares for young children, can be inspired and enriched by an encounter with Steiner/Waldorf early childhood education. We invite you to explore the resources we have gathered on this site to learn more. Our seasonal newsletter 'Star Weavings' is a available to members of SECA as a benefit of membership. Look here to read complimentary past issues.

Join SECA as an individual member or as an organisational member

We wish to acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, whose culture and customs have nurtured and continues to nurture this land since time immemorial. We acknowledge with gratitude that we share this land today and sorrowfully acknowledge the historical as well as the inter-generational costs of that sharing. We would also like to acknowledge our hope and belief that we are moving to a place of equity, justice and partnership together for the future.
