Parent-Child Waldorf Introduction

In this magical series for parents and children (infants to 4-years), you will have the opportunity to delight in the changes that characterize the first three years of life and to meet your child with wonder, respect, and a growing sense of capability.

It will be a sacred time, allowing for deep and meaningful play to unfold for your child, while allowing you time to develop a trust in the inner life of the child… ultimately letting them experience the world as good.

You will get to explore ways of supporting each other as parents, while receiving respect and recognition for the challenging task of conscious parenting.

We will enjoy the seasons and discover ways to celebrate with festivals, crafts, songs, and rhymes.

…. all while learning about Waldorf Education

Meets on five Wednesdays from 9:30 to 11:00. 

Cost per couple is $150,    (adult and child)
