Edith van der Meer ~ Programme Director of Early Childhood

Edith van der Meer has been involved in Rudolf Steiner education since 1986, first as a handwork teacher at Taikura Rudolf Steiner School in Hastings for 14 years and later (after re-training) as a kindergarten and Nursery teacher at the same school for 7 years. She became involved with Taruna when the Federation of Rudolf Steiner/Waldorf Schools in cooperation with Taruna College instigated an In-Service Course for Early Childhood teachers. She works closely with Kathy MacFarlane, an experienced kindergarten teacher and adult educator and Marjorie Theyer, the Federation EC advisor on this Certificate course and the newly established internationally recognised Diploma Course in Rudolf Steiner Early Childhood Education.
