Our Parent & Child class is offered weekly to parents or caregivers and their children from infancy to 36 months old. It is a great way to explore the philosophy of Waldorf early childhood education, share parenting experiences, and support young children in building a safe bridge to their expanding world.
Beginning social interaction in a safe, healthy environment
Parents and children work and play together, celebrate the seasons, and enjoy songs, stories, and finger games. Seasonal crafts and activities include felting, sewing, and making simple dolls and toys.
We follow a rhythmical structure of work and imaginative play to develop skills for healthy social interaction:
Outdoor play and conversation
Inside circle with songs, finger games, movement, and verse
The rhythm may change depending on the weather and the ages of the children.
We typically offer Parent & Child classes in three sessions (fall, winter and spring) during the school year. Parents are welcome to attend one meeting at no cost to try it out. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Parents registered in an earlier session receive priority for re-enrollment in subsequent sessions.
Program fees include supplies for craft projects and any written literature.
We are delighted to announce that our fall Parent & Child class begins on Tuesday, September 14, meeting weekly from 9–10:30 a.m. through Tuesday, November 16.
The class will again be led by Emma Hamlin and will meet on our Pine Hill campus.
Capacity is limited to 10 children and their parents or caregivers. To register, please complete this form.
