Sweet Pea Parent-Infant and Parent-Toddler Program

The first three years of life are full of a phenomenal amount of growth for your child and the foundation of your life-long bonds. East Bay Waldor School's sweet Pea Parent-Child programs are an apportunity for parents and caregivers with their very young children to come together in our inviting Waldorf Early Childhood setting to explore the rewarding and challenging task of rasing young children.  We encourage freedom of movement, self-initiated play, observation and attentive caregiving. Each week we discuss a new topic in child development or Waldorf education and make time for sharing our collective experiences and wisdom. Parents and caregivers deepen their intuitive knowledge of their child, gain confidence in their parenting skills, and learn how to support their child at home. Weekly teacher-led classes for babies, toddlers and children to 3 1/2 years old with a parent or caregiver are offered in the fall, winter and spring.

Age Groups

Classes are specifically designed for each developmental stage, from babies starting at four months to two- and three-year olds, and are nurturing for both parent/caregiver and child. Each class has time for movement, free exploration, singing and games. A healthy, organic scnack is served in the toddler program. A short observation period gives parents/caregivers the chance to practice bringing quiet awareness to their children's ever-growing capacities, fostering appreciation for what your child can do.
