Our Parent-Child program provides education, community and support for families with young children. The program is open to children birth to 3 years old and each class is limited to four or five participating families. This small group of parents and children come together in an environment that is developmentally appropriate, nurturing, and safe for the children while also being nourishing, peaceful, and supportive for the parents.
Our Parent-Child program meets one morning a week in six-week sessions in the fall and spring. The sessions themselves will follow a predictable rhythm that gives the children time for free play (both indoors and out), cooking snack together, and circle time. Parents will read and study the book Simplicity Parenting and our sessions include time for informal group discussion.
In addition to our weekly Parent-Child class, we will have an adult-only evening orientation before we begin.
