Our Parent & Child program helps parents understand young child development in a supportive, warm, nature-inspired environment. Our classes provide a sanctuary of safe play for children and an oasis of peace and friendship for parents where children move freely in simple group activities. Come share and socialize through play, circle time and making simple toys. Children experience puppetry and storytelling, verses, songs and a rhythmic structure that supports their well-being. Parents have the chance to observe, share, support one another and learn about the young child through the lens of Waldorf education. A snack time and tea are included.
