Sessions & Registration
Our Parent and Child Program offers parents support and connection. Under the guidance of a Waldorf-trained Early Childhood teacher, our 90-minute remote classes give parents the opportunity to take part in book or article study as well as parenting support where we will explore questions, difficulties, and successes in parenting. We will deepen our understanding of the young child through learning about child development and the role of the parent as the pillar and the nurturer. These classes are transformational, it is exactly the support that is needed in these times.
The outdoor playgroup meets, weather permitting, for one hour in the mornings. You can choose your day or days. The playgroup will give your child the opportunity for free play, socialization, and fresh air, while parents will learn to sharpen their observational skills while learning to tune into their child with curiosity and wonder. After free play, we will gather for a simple circle time with songs and movement and we will end with a puppet show before saying good-bye.
Those attending outdoor Parent and Child playgroup are asked to bring their own water bottles, a blanket for sitting, masks for all adults and children over age three, hand sanitizer, and rain boots. For cooler weather please remember, coats, hats, mittens, snow boots, and snow pants.
Parent-Child classes are typically ten-week sessions, commencing in the Fall, Winter, and Spring and offered six days a week*, Monday through Saturday. Summer Classes are also available. *Please note that schedule adjustments may be made due to COVID restrictions.
