“I am struck by the fact that the more slowly trees grow at first, the sounder they are at the core, and I think that the same is true of human beings.”
~Henry David Thoreau~
Morning Glories Parent-Child classes are for parents or caregivers and the children they love from ages 9 months to 3 years. The program provides a gentle step for children to transition between home and school life. The Morning Glories classroom provides a safe, nurturing environment featuring natural play materials, a consistent routine, and seasonal rhythm. While the children play, the parents work with their hands creating seasonal crafts and playthings. Parents and caregivers learn more about parenting and Waldorf education. Both adults and children have the opportunity to make new connections with other families. A healthy snack is provided.
