Our Parent-Child classes provide opportunities for families with young children to come together in an age-appropriate, media-free environment to connect and inspire one another. Parents craft a hand-made toy and receive literature on healthy, natural parenting. Classes include a light snack and opportunities for informal conversation with other parents.

Parents come to the Shining Rivers Waldorf School Parent-Child classes to reinvigorate and inspire one another as families. Parents and children participate in activities together such as:

  • Bread Baking
  • Singing and Dancing
  • Puppetry
  • Storytelling
  • Outdoor Play
  • Quiet Social Time

Parents learn to make age-appropriate, natural toys, received guidance on designing healthy, daily rhythms for home, learn songs, and have opportunities for information conversations with other parents.

This class provides a nurturing atmosphere in which to explore the beautiful and natural unfolding stages of very early childhood. Parents learn simple songs and games to play with their children, and develop their ability to quietly observe and interpret children’s movements, gestures, and vocalizations. The class aims to build on parents’ intuitive knowledge, helping them better understand how to be with their children, but also how to let their children be.

Parent-Toddler: 18 months to 3 ½ years

Wednesdays, Thursdays, or Fridays: 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.,
$90 Summer session, $225 10-week Fall session, $270 12-week Spring session

Together parents and children will enjoy bread baking, singing, dancing, storytelling, and puppetry. Quiet indoor play and outdoor time give opportunities for parallel play and social interaction.
