Colegio Yeccan – Waldorf in the Mexican highlands
In 1994, two women took it upon themselves to found a Waldorf school in the picturesque colonial center of the Mexican silver mining industry, where, beginning in the 16th century, a city architecture was created that is overflowing with forms and figures, oriented at the Spanish model, with churches, squares, market halls and other small and large churches and where the narrow paved streets wind up the hills. They called the school Colegio Yeccan, which is a Nahuatl word.
Every morning the children from kindergarten to 6th grade come to Colegio Yeccan, somewhat outside the city. They are taught in in large and small rooms, in a number of interlocked buildings, which are pieced together.
Although the school is already 25 years old, it is by no means securely established. The teachers in particular dream of being able to acquire their own land and houses in the long run and build a more secure existence.
