Growing Together, A Parent-Toddler Class

A Lovely Experience for Parents and Toddlers

Parents and children, 18 months to 3-1/2 years, share in a cozy morning cooking, making handmade toys or beautiful seasonal crafts using natural materials. These activites are followed by circle time and a healthy, organic snack. Each session ends with a thoughtful parent discussion led by a trained Waldorf teacher, while children play with a teaching assistant. Discussions explore joyful ways of parenting with warmth and understanding of the young child. Each Growing Together class consists of about 8 parents, along with their toddlers and younger siblings.
