The Parent-Child class is a once-per-week class. Think of it as our version of “Mommy and Me” (though dads, grandparents, etc. are welcome to attend!) The Parent-Child experience mirrors the rhythms and activities of a Waldorf Early Childhood classroom. Parents/caregivers accompany their children in:

  • circle time and storytelling
  • simple crafts
  • baking bread
  • games
  • physical movement and free play
  • summer fun!

Parents have an opportunity to mingle with each other to discover the framework of Waldorf-inspired best practices. Parents explore the importance of rhythm in the home, the role of early movement in motor organization and speech development, and how to support their child’s budding interest in play. It is also a great way to establish community with like-minded people and build a local support structure.
