Parent Child Classes: Birth to Age 3

The first three years of life are a wonder-filled time when the child’s greatest desire is to experience the world through his or her own efforts. Our Parent-Child Classes offer an opportunity for children and parents to share an educational experience in a supportive and peaceful environment.

Parents or other caregivers with babies and toddlers ages birth to 3 years journey through seasonal activities that support social learning in an inspired setting.

Our Parent-Child classes are organized by day of week and age groups:

  • Saturdays: The Baby Garden: (birth-18 months) | Mornings of tea and conversation centered on child development, health, nutrition, and life rhythms.
  • Thursdays and Fridays: Robin’s Nest & Bluebird’s Nest: (18 months-3 years) | Mornings of play, song, and puppet stories.
