Gentle Beginnings : A Waldorf Family Class for Toddlers and their Caregivers
Children, twelve months to five 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.
