Parent and Child and 2’s Classes

Our Parent and Child program is our warm welcome to Waldorf education. Join us for these weekly classes specially designed for each developmental stage, from babies of 6 months to children who are 1 – 3 years of age. We offer simple and natural toys that nurture the development of a free imaginative life. We offer songs, games, and finger play, appropriate for each age, that encourage the development of fine and gross motor skills. We offer a peaceful and joyful environment that supports healthy social and emotional development.

Parent and Child “2’s” Program

We invite young children 2 years of age and their parents, to join our 2’s Program, two days a week, September through June.

Our 2’s class is a wonderful introduction to the Waldorf early childhood classroom curriculum and our school community. Led by experienced teachers, the children are encouraged to take part in free play, participate in bread-baking or snack preparation and circle time with nursery rhymes and fingerplays.  Parents will have the opportunity to work on simple crafts and to engage in parent study. Children, parents and teachers will share a nutritious organic snack together and seasonal puppet shows.

Parent and Child Class for 6 – 24 Months of Age

These weekly classes are nurturing for both parent and child alike. Each class has time for movement, free exploration, singing and games. The rhythm of the class reflects the rhythm of the day in our Waldorf nursery classroom.  Children share an organic, nutritious snack at the close of each class. Time for conversation and parenting support is also included.
