Early Childhood

Parent & Child Program

A weekly class for parents and their children from infancy to 36 months old, our Parent & Child class is a great way to explore the philosophy of Waldorf early childhood education. This time together supports young children in building a safe bridge to their expanding world.

Beginning social interaction in a safe, healthy environment

Parents and children work and play together, prepare a snack, celebrate the seasons, and enjoy songs, stories, and finger games. Seasonal crafts and activities include felting, sewing, and making simple dolls and toys.
Along the way, parents learn about simple Waldorf precepts about healthy child-rearing.

Daily rhythm

We follow a rhythmical structure of work and imaginative play to develop skills for healthy social interaction:
  • Arrival
  • Indoor play and parent craft activity
  • Inside circle with songs, finger games, movement, verse, and puppet play
  • Outdoor play in yard
  • Goodbye
