Early Childhood

Parent & Child Program

Our Parent & Child class is offered weekly to parents or caregivers 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, 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
  • Outdoor play and conversation
  • Inside circle with songs, finger games, movement, and verse
  • Outdoor play
  • 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 supplies for craft projects and any written literature.

Registration

Please join our Parent & Child email list to receive registration information for upcoming sessions as soon as it is available.
