Heart Spaces

Course for Educators and Parents - 2022

The Heart Spaces course is a year-long, part-time program that takes place on Saturday afternoons online. There are eight sessions per term for four terms. There are 32 sessions of 3 hours each and fees are $1680 per year ($420 per term). To help build social hubs you are encouraged to form small geographical clusters and attend online sessions together.

This course offers a nurturing space to develop as a creative, authentic educator and parent through a range of experiential learning techniques, groupwork, discussions, facilitated processes, lectures and reflections. It also serves as professional development for experienced educators to renew and recharge their forces. It provides very practical and imaginative essences of Rudolf Steiner’s insights into human development.It facilitates the development of creative storytelling skills over four major projects.

You are provided with opportunities to develop skills in a variety of crafts such as dollmaking, puppetry, felting, silk dyeing, papercrafts, making moving pictures and shadow theatre. We regularly practise movement, singing, painting, drawing and claywork.

More than 85 % of our graduates have either found work in Steiner Early Childhood settings, Family Day Care or Bush kinder. Some were in mainstream settings already and have transformed the way they work with children. Others are involved in Steiner educational roles, further training, or in community child care services. 


‘One may think one is enrolling in a child-study course, but it is so much more than that. It is a place of playful, yet deeply reflective self-learning and understanding - inner work can actually be fun, pleasurable, creative, engaging and socially inclusive! On the way to discovering the joys of relating with children, I feel I have uncovered and retrieved my own happy and vital inner child - the greatest blessing.’ (SL: 2020)

‘Carol presents Steiner Education in a way that is relevant for our current world. Her course is a breath of fresh air that prepares us to meet the challenges of our time with courage in our hearts.’ (RB: 2020)

 The program is run by Carol Liknaitzky, who has been an adult educator for the past 40 years, and has extensive experience in the early childhood sector, human and child rights and works in a variety of settings including universities and remote communities in Africa and Australia. She has been running the Heart Spaces Course in Australia for the past 10 years. For more information and to enrol please go to:
