All Parent-Child Classes will be held fully outdoors.
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.
Ms. Nikki’s Parent-Child class has been the highlight of our week. She is exactly the calm, kind, and engaging teacher you want leading your child’s class. Sonny, age 2, absolutely adores her 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
Classes are 9:30-11:30 am in a local greenway 5 mins from our main campus in West Asheville. Parents bring their snacks, water bottles, hand sanitizer/wipes, and something to sit on in the circle for each class. The class takes place 100% outside in all types of weather; rain gear, thermals, rain boots, hats, gloves will be essential when the weather starts to cool down.
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
