AWSNA was founded in 1979 to assist Waldorf schools and institutes in working together to nurture Waldorf Education so that it can manifest more widely in the world. Now, there are more than 200 affiliated schools and institutes on the North American continent.
WECAN's mission is to nurture the work with young children from pre-birth to age seven, based on an understanding of the healthy development of the child in body, soul and spirit. Our goal is to protect and nurture childhood as the foundation for a truly human culture in the future.
The Alliance for Childhood promotes policies and practices that support children's healthy development, love of learning, and joy in living. Our public education campaigns bring to light both the promise and the vulnerability of childhood. We act for the sake of the children themselves and for a more just, democratic, and ecologically responsible future.

A master Waldorf teacher now consultant in the Waldorf and public sector writes on his web site: "We hope to serve as a contemporary resource for people interested in educating children in the twenty-first century. Our foundation rests on Waldorf education, and we enthusiastically acknowledge that the Waldorf method is based on Anthroposophy, a worldview promulgated by Rudolf Steiner. Rather than proscribing narrow limits to the scope of this web site, Steiner's approach serves as a springboard for understanding and embracing all that serves the true needs of the modern child."
