Parent-Child Program

The youngest members of our School community will find a warm welcome in our Parent-Child program. Young children from three months up to four years old are welcome to attend a weekly session with their parent or caregiver.

Sacramento Waldorf School Parent-Child classes are centered on group play sessions.  Small groups of parents and infants come together in an environment that is safe, developmentally appropriate and emotionally nurturing for the children and peaceful and supportive for the adults. During the play sessions, adults quietly observe their children explore as the facilitator models when and how to intervene. Discussion topics during this observation time often include reading your child’s cues and signals and how to respond; fostering social skills; understanding physical and intellectual development; and the need for safe environments and consistent boundaries. It is often a time for parents to ask questions about their children.
