General Information:

Parent & Child classes offer parents, grandparents and caregivers the opportunity to connect with other families who are interested in Waldorf education. IWS offers beautiful indoor and outdoor play spaces where parents and children can explore and experience a nurturing rhythm that supports play, imagination and imitation. It is a time for interacting with your little one in activities such as snack preparation, free play and movement, simple circle games and songs and exploring nature together. With the guidance of an experienced Waldorf teacher, we will explore topics such as: meals with children, discipline in early childhood, media/technology and family life, building healthy rhythms into your home life , and other topics related to bringing up small children in today's world.

Craft & Conversation
