The Parent and Child Program, AKA Peas & Carrots and Musical Story Time, serves families with children ages birth through 3.
The goal of our 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.
