Parent Child Classes

SGWS-ParentChildBanner

 

 

Parents and children (ages 18 months to 4 years old) join together in a class that is held mostly outdoors and imitates the rhythms and atmosphere of a Waldorf early childhood class experience.  Classes are taught by Marina Ristev Rana, an experienced Waldorf Early Childhood teacher.  Children are guided through the morning by the gently rhythm of circle time, nature walk, creative play, snack, and story time.  Young children learn through imitation.  With this in mind, we will ask that parents participate in each of these activities or help with daily tasks depending on the lead given by the teacher.

The natural world and seasonal festivals are reflected during circle time.  This provides the opportunity to learn through music and rhyme.  Games and movement activities engage both large and fine motor coordination.  Stories and puppet plays nourish the child’s imagination and provide rich material for creative play. Time in nature throughout the seasons allow for awe, wonder, and discovery of our world.

During class, we will offer information and give parents an opportunity to discuss child development, parenting questions, and Waldorf education with an experienced teacher.  Sessions are offered year round.

Sumer classes are offered once weekly for seven weeks on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at Spring Garden Waldorf School, from 9:30 a.m. – 12 noon. Classes begin the week of June 6th, and there are no classes the week of July 4th.   Cost per session is $200/parent and child and $100 for each additional sibling.  There is a 10% discount if you register for the full year.
