Parent-Child Program


Babies – 4-year-olds 

Our parent-child program is a sanctuary for parents, caregivers, and their young children from birth to four years old. Parent-Child classes are an early childhood education program that offers an essential bridge between the child’s early life at home and their first entry into school. This program answers the call of families, offering support and companionship in the early years of parenting.

Parent-Child classes strive to create a nurturing, rhythmical environment for children as well as for parents. Parents deepen their intuitive knowledge, discover new ways of being with their children, and explore the joys and challenges of raising young children. We will create a wholesome environment that weaves a community of support through stories and songs, outdoor exploration, simple adult crafts, and sharing a circle and snack time.  

Registration for Winter 2024 is Now Open!

Morning classes are 9:30-11:30 am, and Afternoon classes are 12:30-2:30pm. 

In the Parent-Child program some topics we may discuss are:

  • How young children learn through imitation
  • The importance of warmth and sleep
  • The importance of creating rhythm in the home
  • Care and protection of the senses in the child’s early years
  • The young child’s need to move and play freely

AWS’s Parent-Child class has been the highlight of our week. The class is calm and engaging and the teacher is kind and present – just the energy you want to lead your child’s class. Our child absolutely adores this class and was so excited to sign up for a second session. I highly recommend this class for any little one who loves to learn and play outside! – Emily, Parent
