Welcome to our Family Programs

We believe that the parents and caregivers of children under three years old have one of the most important jobs in the world. So we offer programs to nurture and support those who care for babies and young children. In our Parent Infant and Parent Child classes, we explore parenting challenges and share ideas about how to create a home life that supports healthy and joyful growth. Classes meet weekly and are facilitated by a Waldorf-trained teacher.

Parent Child Classes

These classes provide a gentle structure within which toddlers (up to young three-year-olds) can begin to experience the world outside of the home with the security of a parent nearby. Ample time for play will be balanced with simple activities. Parents will have the opportunity to observe how the teacher transforms these activities into education for the young child. The classes provide a welcoming and respectful place where parents can come together in mutual support.

Parent Child Classes meet on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings and include a light snack. We offer:

Parent Child Classes on Thursdays for toddlers from 18 to 36 months old.

Parent Child Classes on Fridays for toddlers from 12 to 24 months old.

The beginning week of each new Parent Child Class includes an orientation session – just for the parents – intended for those who are joining a class for the first time.

Classes are enrolled on a first come, first served basis.
