Parent-Child Class is a once-per-week class for children ages 18 months to 3.5 years. It is a great way for parents/grandparents/caregivers and children to begin their Waldorf Early Childhood journey together. It provides a bridge for young children as they prepare for preschool. It also provides a resource for parents who would like to incorporate Waldorf concepts into their home life.
Parent-Child meets one morning per week. Session schedules vary. Please see the schedule and registration links below for details.
You are welcome to visit our school as part of your decision-making process.
What happens in Parent-Child Class?
Parents and children come together in a nurturing, home-like setting for a shortened experience that echoes the rhythms and atmosphere of our Early Childhood classrooms. Parents accompany their children in circle time, story time, preparing and sharing a healthy snack, creating simple crafts, singing, playing games and enjoying outdoor time and healthy physical movement. The teacher also leads discussion among the adults while the children are encouraged to explore and engage in imaginative play.
These classes offer a place to discuss parenting issues, establish community and a local support structure, learn ways to establish rituals for a healthy rhythm at home, and learn more about Waldorf education with an experienced classroom teacher before enrolling in our Early Childhood Program.

“I am struck by the fact that the more slowly trees grow at first, the sounder they are at the core, and I think that the same is true of human beings. We do not wish to see children precocious, making great strides in their early years like sprouts, producing a soft and perishable timber, but better if they expand slowly at first, as if contending with difficulties, and so are solidified and perfected. Such trees continue to expand with nearly equal rapidity to extreme old age.”
–Henry David Thoreau
