Parent-Toddler Program

image for Parent-Toddler Program

Our parent and toddler program is for children, birth to 3 years old, and their caregivers. The programs offer parents and children the opportunity to come together in a supportive and nurturing atmosphere to explore the wonders of the first years of life and give parents a living picture of the Waldorf philosophy for early childhood in action.

Our indoor programs are a fall, winter, and spring session. The class is filled with meaningful work, as wholesome snacks are prepared. The children enjoy open-ended play and join together for snack and circle time. While the majority of the time is spent indoors, there is still some outdoor time during each class. Each group meets once a week for 2 hours.

Required Supplies:

  • RAINPANTS AND RAIN COAT (Fall & Spring Sessions)
  • SNOWPANTS AND WINTER COAT (All Sessions)
  • Mittens
  • Winter Hat
  • Comfortable, waterproof winter boots
  • Water bottles and snack
  • A change of clothes; diapering supplies as needed

For information regarding the importance of outdoor gear, please see this blog post.
