In these classes you and your child will experience the rhythms of a Waldorf early childhood classroom morning in a beautiful home-like environment. We begin with plenty of time for the children to play creatively and explore inside our space.
While the children play, parents busy themselves with baking, and a variety of toy making and artistic activities which the children can choose to help with. Also, I will show how to observe and point out developmental milestones of your child and ways on how you can enhance each one of them at home.
You and your child will experience activities all together during ‘circle time’ which includes seasonal songs and verses, as well as nourishing homemade snacks with herb teas, seated around our community table. We will have outdoor playtime that offers natural, developmentally appropriate materials for young children to explore self-balance, movement and the beginnings of social interactions, and includes ample time to just enjoy nature. The class concludes with a puppet story and a goodbye circle.
