Parent-Child

Meet the World With Wonder

Parenting is hard work. Support and community are the keys to thriving as a parent/caregiver and to helping our youngest ones to meet the world with wonder, which is what they do best.

The Chicago Waldorf School's Parent-Baby and Parent-Child programs foster growth and community, while providing resources for parents/caregivers and their children from ages zero to three.

Our Classes

Parent-Baby (Age 0-1)

The Parent-Baby Class is a unique opportunity to meet other parents/caregivers at this incredible time in your baby’s life – sharing your experience and celebrating the journey together.

Class begins with lunch (provided) and conversation. Each parent/caregiver has a chance to share the joys and challenges of the week. Then, everyone moves to the play area and enjoys some floor time, noting the developmental movement patterns of the children and often replicating the movement for a deeper appreciation of this stage. Each class closes with finger plays and lullabies.

Parent-Child (Age 1-3)

In Parent-Child, participants come together in an inviting environment that echoes the rhythms and atmosphere of a Waldorf Early Childhood classroom. Parents/caregivers accompany their children in circle and story time, preparing a snack, sharing a snack, creating simple crafts, singing and playing games and enjoying physical movement. Expert teachers guide discussions among the parents while the children are encouraged to explore and engage in imaginative play.

These classes offer a place to connect, discuss child development and parenting issues, and learn about Waldorf education with an experienced classroom teacher, as well as meet with other parents/caregivers of small children. It will be your favorite thing to do once a week with your child.
