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.
We follow a rhythmical structure of work and imaginative play to develop skills for healthy social interaction:
Indoor play and parent craft activity
Inside circle with songs, finger games, movement, verse, and puppet play
Outdoor play in yard
The rhythm may change depending on the weather and the ages of the children.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or (603) 654-6003 x304 to register and learn about family rates.
Founded in 1972, Pine Hill merged with High Mowing School in 2017 to create a coeducational, non-denominational, accredited Waldorf school serving students from early childhood through Grade 12. High Mowing School is accredited by NEASC and AWSNA (high school current, lower school in process).
