Parent and Child Group

Parent and Child (birth to 3 years)

You can bring children from birth to 3 years old one or more mornings a week. The groups are small and friendly and are an excellent way to meet new friends and be inspired by the insights of Waldorf education. The seasons Each session has its own rhythmic and seasonal quality which helps foster a reassuring sense of continuity, creates a connection with the natural world and develops wonder in the eyes of the child. We begin our sessions in the garden with seasonal activities. Peaceful play These groups focus on supporting parents with babies and young children in a nurturing environment. In a peaceful atmosphere, parents and children can play and talk to one another. Natural toys Surrounded by simple toys made of natural materials, the children play in the cosy home corner and create their own play scenes. In each session, there is time for play and craft activity. Circle time, freshly-baked food In circle time we listen to a story, sing familiar nursery rhymes and seasonal songs of childhood, and there is always a shared snack of freshly-baked food. Hours Snowdrops (Parent & Child) sessions run Mondays-Thursdays 9.30- 11.30am. Seedlings (Parent & Baby) is Fridays 9.30-11am and 1-2.30pm. Please contact the school office or for more information.
