A First Introduction to Waldorf Education
This class is frequently the first introduction to Waldorf education for a family and is designed to meet the needs of both parents/caregivers and children. We provide a wholesome and age-appropriate play space and toys and encourage and model healthy interactions between parents and children. We encourage parents to observe their children thereby learning more about their child’s development and needs.
A Community of Support
We support the forming of community among parents and provide a meeting place for parents with some common values. We offer support and encouragement to parents in the critical and demanding work of parenting toddlers. During the morning, informal conversation occurs about challenges that parents are currently facing, and other parents as well as the teacher can offer support and insight. Nutritious snacks both nourish the class participants and give parents ideas for foods to prepare for their children.
Parents are given a weekly article on topics that are relevant to their work as parents of young children such as:
