A Warm and Gentle Welcome

Parent/Baby and Parent/Child classes provide a safe and caring environment that deepens our intuitive parenting capacities and nourishes our children during these formative years.

NEW – Parent/Baby Classes — Beginning on October 12th, 2018

Parent/baby classes will be held on Fridays from 11:30-12:45PM.

Join other parents and babies for gentle and playful songs, quiet observation and lively conversation. Babies are free to explore in a safe and nurturing environment.

Together we will learn how to observe and meet a baby’s needs at different developmental stages, and how to create a home life that supports healthy and joyful growth. We enroll “expecting parents” into this class as well as parents with babies up to 14 months.

Discussion topics include rhythm and routine, sleep, healthy movement and development, care of the senses, Waldorf education, and nourishing ourselves as parents. Lullabies and seasonal songs will be shared, along with reading materials. Our goal, through observation, is to honor the wisdom in each child and parent.

First 8 week session dates are: 10/12, 10/19, 10/26, 11/9, 11/16, 11/30, 12/7 and 12/14. Cost is $200.
