A weekly program for you and your child in a beautiful Waldorf setting.
Children are carried by the consistent rhythm of creative play, snack, circle, story time and outdoor play.
A joyous and calm, yet very active environment: we grind flour, bake bread, play interactive games, sing, say rhymes and verses, and sometimes enjoy a puppet story.
Parents have the opportunity to learn to knit and to work on simple craft projects. Together, we enjoy our delicious organic fresh-baked bread or muffins, tea, and fruit.
Every class includes a brief discussion on various parenting topics and child development for children aged 18 months to 3.5 years.
