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.
Parent-Infant: Expecting to 18 months.
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 1/2 years.
Together parents and children will enjoy bread baking, singing, dancing, storytelling and puppetry. Indoor and outdoor play time give opportunities for parallel play and social interaction. Parents craft a hand-made toy and discuss literature on healthy, natural parenting. Classes include a light snack and opportunities for connection with other parents.
