The First Three Years: Classes for Parents and Children
Parent-child classes at the Washington Waldorf School offer a gentle introduction to the group setting and a welcoming home-like space for parents and children. Here, children can explore and experience a rhythm and a calm atmosphere that supports play, healthy self-initiated movement, and imitation. Themes related to child development, Waldorf education, and parenting the young child are explored through readings and facilitated discussions. Experienced Waldorf early childhood educators, who care deeply about supporting each parent/guardian and child on their own individual path, lead our classes. We meet weekly either at a beautiful outdoor spot or inside our Garden House, a yurt, which is nestled in our Children’s Garden play yard.
We offer classes in 10 or 12 week blocks in fall and spring, for three age groups:
- Parents and infants who are not yet crawling (the Moon Garden)
- Parents and toddlers up to 2 year, 3 months (the Star Garden)
- Parents and children older than 2 years 3 months (the Sun Garden and Waldorf in the Woods forest parent-child class.
