Early Childhood

Parent & Child Program

Our Parent & Child class is offered weekly to parents and their children from infancy to 36 months old. It is a great way to explore the philosophy of Waldorf early childhood education, share parenting experiences, and support 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, share 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.

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
The rhythm may change depending on the weather and the ages of the children.

Class information

We typically offer Parent & Child classes in three sessions (fall, winter and spring) during the school year. Parents are welcome to attend one meeting at no cost to try it out. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Parents registered in an earlier session receive priority for re-enrollment in subsequent sessions.

Program fees include organic snacks, supplies for craft projects and any written literature.


Please join our Parent & Child email list to receive registration information as soon as it is available. If you have more than one child, please contact our Admissions Office at or (603) 654-6003 x304 to register and learn about family rates.
