Parent & Child Classes
Nurturing a healthy childhood includes supporting the caregiving journey. The Parent & Child Program at the Waldorf School of Baltimore provides an inclusive, engaging meeting place where caregivers can form community, gain insight into their child’s development, and enjoy a rare moment of relaxation as their toddlers socialize in the school’s warm and welcoming Children’s Garden.
Our Parent & Child classes are specially designed to engage infants and toddlers to age three. Working through the developmentally appropriate means of touch, movement, and imitation, teachers lead parents and their children to explore the world around them through multi- sensory collaboration. This exploration offers a healthy balance between the child’s essential, natural initiative for independence and a safe introduction to peer cooperation.
This popular morning program is led by a Waldorf-trained early childhood teacher and includes time for a language-rich movement circle, a wholesome snack that children can help prepare, engaging handwork projects for adults, the sharing and discussion of weekly articles, and creative play with peers.
With its emphasis on simplicity and natural materials, everything in a Waldorf classroom is chosen for its ability to nourish the senses, bring joy, and serve a useful purpose. In these beautiful and thoughtful spaces, children are less likely to be overstimulated and better able to ground themselves in the rich, imaginative free play that is so valuable to their growth and development.
Watch as your child experiences the seasons through stories and songs, along with preparing and sharing wholesome snacks. With the guidance of our Parent Child teacher, young children develop an early appreciation for the natural world, cultivating social skills and a basic understanding of what it means to be part of a larger community of friends.
