PARENT/ TODDLER PROGRAM
For children 18 months to 3 years and their caregivers
Parent/ Toddler classes are designed for very young children and their caregivers to experience and get familiar with the daily rhythm of a Waldorf early childhood classroom. Parents are kept busy with small handwork projects while their children learn to play and interact with other children on their own in the comfort of the presence of their parents and the teacher.
Upon arrival and sign-in, parents and children gather outside in the beautiful park and go see the ducks and turtles. Parents have an opportunity to meet other parents. Then we gather inside our lovely classroom for circle time where parents and children learn simple verses, songs and movements. After circle time we all sit down at a nicely set table for a snack consisting of fresh fruits and some freshly baked bread or tortillas. Water and tea is served. Children learn to sit still and follow instructions. A candle is lit and we all say a blessing together. Afterwards the children help to clean up. Snack is followed by free play, cleanup, possibly a puppet show and our good-bye ceremony.
We highly recommend that all children first attend the parent/ toddler classes before they move on to our preschool/ kindergarten. In fact, these classes are a preparation for preschool/ kindergarten. The children and the parents get to know the teacher, which will lessens possible separation anxiety later on.
