Babies – 4-year-olds 

Our parent-child program is a sanctuary for parents, caregivers and their young children from birth to three and a half 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.

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

Parent-Child classes strive to create a nurturing, rhythmical environment for children as well as for parents. Parents deepen their own intuitive knowledge, discover new ways of being with their children and explore the joys and challenges of raising young children. Through stories and song, indoor and outdoor play, simple adult crafts and the sharing in a healthy snack, we will create a wholesome environment that weaves a community of support.

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
