Parent and Child Program

Our Parent and Child classes are for parents with children from birth to 3 1/2 years old. Led by an experienced Early Childhood teacher, the Parent and Child program is a nurturing, gentle transition from home life to school. With your child, spend a wonder-filled morning each week for 9 weeks.  While the children play and explore, parents will get a glimpse into the rhythm and philosophy of Waldorf Education through discussion, meaningful work, and artistic projects. Songs, movement, and a short puppet play complete a joyful morning together.

These sessions emphasize child observation and parent-child interaction in a supportive atmosphere that allows parents to learn about the Waldorf approach to early childhood while their children engage in creative play and artistic activities with the teacher, parents and each other.

To register your family, please call the school at 333-9062 or email Linda Shepherd at enroll@waldorfak.org. Seasonal craft materials, snacks and literature on child development are included in the fee. Space is limited, and a $60 deposit is required at time of registration to secure your spot in a class.
