Parent/Toddler Program

Sprouts—for children 18 months old to 3 years old and their parent/caregiver! 

Next session: Fridays 1:30 – 3:30 pm, April 26 – May 31, 2024

During the school year, we meet once per week for a 6-week session. The cost is $300. 

Sprouts is our parent-toddler program for 18 months to 3 years old. It runs for 6 consecutive weeks.  We meet for 2-hour sessions on Fridays from 1:30 – 3:30 pm.  Sprouts introduces families to concepts of Waldorf parenting and aspects of our Waldorf Early Childhood program.  The program is facilitated by two Early Childhood educators and is limited to 8 registering families. 

Each week you will experience outdoor play time alongside your child and be introduced to one aspect of the Early Childhood program.  Adults will then gather for educator-led parenting discussions and handwork, while children play nearby, supervised by an Early Childhood educator. Each week’s discussion will build upon the last to provide you with a broad foundation of Waldorf parenting concepts.  Participants in our program are warmly invited to attend school-wide festivals and celebrations as well as parent-education evenings and Open Houses. We encourage you to be a part of our thriving and supportive school community.

Over the course of six weeks, you may experience: 
  • Creative indoor and outdoor play
  • Helping prepare and enjoy nutritious snacks together
  • Circle time 
  • Storytelling 
  • Crafts
  • Educational readings/podcasts for discussion
