Parent-Child Classes at the Waldorf School of St. Louis 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 discuss literature on healthy, natural parenting. Classes include a light snack and opportunities for informal conversation with other parents.
Parent-Infant classes are for expectant parents and those with children up to 18 months. This class provides a nurturing atmosphere in which to explore the unfolding stages of 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.
Parent-Toddler classes are for parents and their children ages 18 months to 3 1/2 years. Together, parents and children will enjoy bread baking, singing, dancing, storytelling and puppetry. Quiet indoor play and outdoor time present opportunities for parallel play and social interaction.
