Parent & Child Playgroup

A weekly playgroup for young children and their caregivers!

In our morning Parent & Child Playgroup, caregivers with children aged 18 months to three years meet for friendship and fun in the warm, nurturing setting of our early childhood center. Taking inspiration from the seasonal rhythm of the year, each weekly playgroup offers free-play, crafts, songs, a nourishing snack and time for parents to share insights and experiences. Playgroups are led by an experienced Waldorf early childhood educator.

The Parent & Child Playgroup is a wonderful social opportunity that nurtures the whole family and provides a bridge from home to school.

Registration is open for fall and winter 2022-2023. The playgroup meets Thursdays from 8:45–11:00 a.m. The fee for each 6-week session is $180.
