Parenting with Heart

Parenting with Heart : Mornings Together

Twelve-week classes for toddlers aged 12 – 36 months and their parent or caregiver.

Our Parenting with Heart program empowers parents and caregivers as their child’s first teacher during the early years, and offers a simple, accessible, and artistic vision for nurturing the growing family.

Mornings Together classes will offer a gentle introduction to Waldorf Education for little ones and their families. We will focus on the “Three Rs” – Rhythm, Reverence, and Repetition – which so perfectly nourish and support the needs of the young child. Each morning will be a calm and joyful journey through outdoor and indoor play and exploration, preparation and sharing of food around the table, seasonal songs, stories, and crafts. There will also be weekly opportunities for adult discussion on topics such as sleeping and waking, eating, communication, holding healthy boundaries and nurturing ourselves as adults along the way.

Each twelve-week class meets from 9:00 – 11:00 am. Choose Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays or Fridays.

The distinguishing characteristics that I notice about Waldorf students are their creative thinking, their self-confidence, and their love of learning — qualities that make learning refreshing. Lisa Babinet, PhD
