In a parent-child class, parents may:
- Deepen their understanding of child development through observation
- Learn more about the care for our senses
- Create healthy rhythms and discipline
- Relate to their children through play, song, story, and handwork.
Our Parent-Child classes provide a gentle and nurturing setting for families to come together once a week and explore ways to protect the grace, magic, and wonder of the first three years of childhood. The morning is filled with activities such as bread-making, circle rhymes, verses, songs, a puppet story and indoor and outdoor play. Everyone shares in a delicious, fresh, organic snack. Our classes embrace the participants in an atmosphere that is timeless, full, and nourishing, through a conscious awareness for the well-being and care of the children and through acceptance and respect for each other.
Each fall and spring we offer parents an in-depth Saturday parent meeting that contains discussions on various parenting and child development topics, such as play, discipline, sleep, nutrition, media, rhythm and routines. Parents are given materials to read and observational tasks to engage in, and are encouraged to share their insights, request topics, and ask questions.
