The outdoor program has a gentle rhythm, with extensive time for free play in nature. We want to offer children the space and time to experience the amazing feelings and challenges of being outdoors, exploring nature and enjoying the change of seasons. Our main toys will be the dirt, rocks, sticks and leaves, and the all-time favorites, puddles and mud! Adults will also have a chance to connect with other parents and caregivers. Our teachers will bring joyful songs, finger and lap games, and a short puppet story to enjoy together.

In our Parent-Child Program, each session guides parents in recognizing and supporting their children’s emerging interests and abilities.
Rudolf Steiner School’s expert and nurturing teachers create a loving and safe environment for babies and toddlers to engage in free, self-initiated play. Simple toys made of natural materials, such as wood and wool, allow children to deeply explore their senses and capacities. Activities include bread baking, and learning songs and finger games to use at home to enliven children’s imagination.
Adults will find a welcoming environment to share questions, experiences, and insights about their children and their own development as parents. Conversations and observations invite parents to reflect on ways to navigate parenting with care and respect for their children and themselves, and to nourish and strengthen their family life.
For our incoming Nursery families, the Spring session of the Parent-Child Program has been a great support in transitioning families into a gentle start in September. Children and parents get to know each other and spend time together, sharing expectations, doubts and insights on their upcoming shift from home to a school environment.
