Parent Child Classes
Parent Child classes run in ten-class sessions throughout the school year.
In these cozy and gentle classes, parents and young children come together in an inviting environment that echoes the rhythms and warmth of a Waldorf Early Childhood classroom. Parents participate with their children in circle and story time, preparing a snack, sharing a snack, creating simple crafts, singing and playing games and enjoying physical movement. Our loving teacher guides discussions among the parents while the children are encouraged to explore and engage in imaginative play.
These classes offer a place to connect, discuss child development and parenting issues, and learn about Waldorf education with an experienced classroom teacher, as well as meet other parents of young children.
