Early Childhood: Waldorf Parent & Child Programs

The Parent and Child Program, AKA Peas & Carrots, serves families with children ages birth through 3.  Our Musical Story Time program serves this demographic as well.

The goal of the Peas & Carrots program is to create community around the early years of parenting, and to provide parents and children with a way to experience the rhythms of a morning in the Kinderhaus. This is an opportunity for children to become familiar with the Waldorf rhythm, activities and space while still in their parents’ presence.

Each week parents, together with their children, enjoy a movement circle, story time and a nutritious snack. In addition, parents work on a seasonal craft while their children play and they are given helpful articles intended to deepen their understanding of the developmental stages of early childhood. During the handwork time, there is an opportunity for discussion of these topics while the children play.

Our Musical Story Time program offers parents of young children a morning activity where they can celebrate the seasons through songs and stories.  Sing, dance, skip and gallop to heartfelt songs accompanied by piano, flute, ukulele, kinderharp and bells.  Nourish your storytelling traditions in your household through simple original stories that can form the foundation of literacy.  Meet other parents and grandparents with their little ones, and enjoy a fun outing at the Waldorf School.

See our school calendar for a complete listing of offerings, dates and registration.
