Parent & Tot

The First Steps

For children ages 12 months to 3 years accompanied by a parent, grandparent or caregiver, classes are one day per week for two hours.


  • The morning begins with free-play, allowing the children to engage their imaginations in our warm and inviting classroom.
  • The healthy rhythm of the day supports the children’s sense of familiarity and security, with ample opportunities to learn about social graces with parents and teacher nearby.
  • Teachers tell stories that engage the children with puppets or marionettes.
  • A nutritious snack is prepared and eaten together.
  • Each child bakes a bun to take home at the end of the morning.
  • Rain or shine, the morning ends with outdoor adventures in our yard, where the little ones are captivated by the beauty of nature and their explorations provide rich sensory experiences.


  • During class, parents engage in quiet handcrafts and meal preparation, while their children play nearby.
  • Throughout the year, parent education evenings give parents and teachers an opportunity to discuss child development, parenting issues and Waldorf education. As part of each parent evening, parents engage in a group craft activity before saying goodnight.

For older children, our Morning Preschool is a gentle transitional step toward our expanded Preschool program.
