Our Parent-Child Classes are for parents and caregivers with children from birth to three years of age. We meet once a week for two hours during the fall, winter, and spring. This group time provides important socialization for the young child and acclimates them to the school in preparation for the Preschool-Kindergarten experience. It also gives parents an opportunity to meet other parents in the area and to discuss parenting issues.
During our group time, the children engage in free play in an outdoor space designed for our youngest members while parents and caregivers have the option to make a seasonal craft. The teacher then leads the group in circle time with movement, songs, and a puppet story. Afterward, we share an organic, wholesome snack with ingredients from local markets. We then go for a nature walk on our woodland trail, and at the end of the two hours, we sing a goodbye song together.
