Growing Together, A Parent-Toddler Class

A Lovely Experience for Parents and Toddlers

Parents and children, eighteen months to three-and-a-half years, share in a cozy morning of cooking and making handmade toys or beautiful seasonal crafts using natural materials. These activities are followed by circle time and a healthy, organic snack. Each session ends with a thoughtful parent discussion led by Brenda Haak, longtime Waldorf teacher, while children play with Kerry Bradley Joly, the teaching assistant. Discussions explore joyful ways of parenting the young child with warmth and understanding. Each Growing Together class consists of about eight parents along with their toddlers and younger siblings.
