Peach Blossom is for infants who are 3 – 12 months¹. Caregivers will be provided the opportunity to discover how to observe, understand, respect and enjoy the individuality of each baby. Classes include interactive touching and singing games, developmental observation and discussion time with other parents.
Peach Blossom meets weekly for 5 classes on Fridays from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm.
Parent & Child Classes at Waldorf at Moraine Farm - Beverly MA. Parent and Child classes offer parents, grandparents, and caregivers the opportunity to learn about child development, Waldorf education and parenting the young child all within a home-like environment at our beautiful location on Moraine Farm.
With indoor and outdoor play spaces where parents and children can explore and experience a soothing rhythm that supports play, imagination and imitation, our educators offer support and guidance for each family and child. It is a time for interacting with your young child for a morning of bread-making, free play and movement, circle games, songs and nature activities while exploring topics such as:
- Meals with Children
- Discipline in Early Childhood
- Media/Technology and Family Life
- Rhythms in the Home
- Children in Nature
