Parent & Tot Classes:
Each week, children and caregivers experience the gentle rhythm of the morning routine which includes outdoor and child-led play, craft and community for parents, circle time with story and song. Stories are repeated throughout the season in acknowledgement of a young child's developmental need for and pleasure in repetition. This is a joyful introduction to joining group activities and exploring a Waldorf approach to early childhood learning.
Nursery / Wondergarden:
Our Nursery program is an un-parented program for children 3.5 to 5 years old, held over 2 half days per week. It provides a warm and inspiring environment where children can begin to develop their independence. The rhythm of the days include outdoor play, circle time with seasonal stories and songs, and lots of independent play with simple, natural materials to develop creative and social skills. Healthy, organic snacks are provided to keep children fuelled for classes filled with movement and fun. Activities and festivals marking the rhythm of the changing seasons help foster a connection with the natural world.
