Gentle Beginnings : A Waldorf Family Class for Toddlers and their Caregivers

Children, six months to four years, and their caregivers share in a cozy morning of cooking and making handmade toys or beautiful seasonal crafts using natural materials.

Come explore Waldorf Education and enjoy the support of other parents. Classes are comprised of about 8 parents, along with their toddlers and younger siblings. We share in a cozy morning of cooking, toy making or seasonal crafts. Children are welcome to work alongside their parents or are free to explore our beautiful, home-like classroom. All the children participate in a morning circle and shared snack. Children who are comfortable separating from their parents will then transition to the garden with an assistant, while the parents stay inside to enjoy a more in-depth conversation.

Growing Together Daily Rhythm
This fall’s session will be a true nature immersion program! Our classes will be housed in a large tent on our beautiful, 8 acre campus. Due to the outdoor nature of the class, families should be prepared for the weather by dressing themselves and their children in layers. Our classes follow a breath-like rhythm, making them very comfortable for children who quickly adapt to the flow.
