Individual Membership

WECAN began as an individual membership organization—a grass-roots association of Waldorf early childhood colleagues—and individual memberships actually exceed the number of organizational memberships. We see this as a sign of healthy colleagueship within our movement, and encourage individuals to continue to join WECAN in order to receive their own membership services, including the twice-yearly Gateways newsletter, and to support the work of the Association.


  • Subscription to Gateways newsletter
  • 10% discount on orders from WECAN Books
  • WECAN News Updates and other informational mailings
  • Discounted registration fees for WECAN conferences
  • Opportunity to subscribe to a WECAN e-mail list to receive research and articles of interest

Annual Membership Dues:$55-$75/year, with a sliding scale option

We offer a group discount on Individual Membership ($50 instead of $55-$75) to those who are affiliated with an Associate or Full organizational member of WECAN. In order to receive the group discount on Individual Membership, three or more individuals (parents are welcome) affiliated with a WECAN Full or Associate Member must send in their Individual Membership forms and dues together. Please fill out the Individual Membership form (see link below) and send it in with others in your group, or call the WECAN office to pay the discounted rate for your group.

Membership in WECAN is open to any individual wishing to support the development of Waldorf early childhood education. WECAN does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, age, religion or religious creed, disability or handicap, sex or gender, gender identity and/or expression, or sexual orientation.
