Sweet Pea: Parent-Child Program
Sweet Pea is a wonderful introduction to the school and a gentle first step to take before your little one is ready for our Early Childhood Program!
“What an amazing day. I seriously feel like any stress I came in with today melted away… What an amazing space for children that you’ve created. Zoe couldn’t stop talking about you during dinner today. Zoe remembered the song [from circle] and asks to sing it over and over. This class is a blessing to my soul –even if I am a super beginner crafter. I say all that to say thank you for an amazing first day!”
“The work of childhood is to play.”
What do these statements mean for young children and their families?
“Rhythm fosters discipline.”
Boulder Valley Waldorf’s Parent-Child Program is designed for children 6 months until their 3rd birthday together with a parent.
The Parent-Child classes invite children and one of their parents into the Early Childhood classroom to explore the interactions of play, rhythm, and discipline in child development. Once a week, in an hour-and-a-half class, children play with the materials and toys in the classroom and outdoors on play-yard while their accompanying adults work on beautiful and simple projects. In our time together we will learn the meaning of the above statements as we:
- Work and play
- Enjoy our freshly baked bread of organic ingredients
- Move together and laugh with finger plays and circle games
- Hear stories and puppet plays
These classes are intended to be the “gateway” into our school and into Waldorf education, and our hope is parents will discover a new world of learning and support for family life, a dedicated community of other parents, and the way in which Waldorf education addresses the needs of the whole child.
