PARENT-CHILD CLASSES are a gentle and nurturing program for children 18 months to three years old with an accompanying caregiver, led by an experienced Waldorf educator. Children engage in creative play with simple, natural toys that stimulate their imagination. While the children play, parents may work on a craft project provided by the teacher, help with snack preparation, or discuss aspects of parenting or child development. The morning ends on the playground for time to swing, climb, and play in the sandbox. A goodbye song in a circle completes the morning.
The flow of activities each week is the same, so that even the youngest children observe the weekly rhythms and begin to participate as part of the larger group.
The Parent-Child program is a wonderful social opportunity that nurtures the whole family and provides a bridge from home to school. When ready (at age three), young children may transition to the mixed-age Early Childhood classroom.
