Spring 2021

Parent & Child Classes

Parent & Child Classes for children 10 months to 6 years old outdoors on our beautiful Moraine Farm property.

Classes are grouped by age to offer a rhythm that is well-suited to the child’s development.  We meet weekly with the same group of families as we share the parenting journey together.  Kate Hill, an experienced early childhood educator, holds a calm and safe space for families with the right balance of freedom and structure.

Our beautiful Moraine Farm property has gardens and nature trails where children enjoy being outdoors, climbing, swinging, exploring, and where play comes from the child’s imagination. Activities include circle games, songs, and a shared snack of freshly baked bread. A seasonal craft or two will be offered per session. Topics such as creating a rhythm for your child, supporting the senses, healthy boundaries, learning through imitation and play, warmth, sleep, and meal times will be explored. We have an extensive lending library and parenting materials will be shared weekly.

A Message for You

Thank you for your interest in our Parent & Child program. Our sweet outdoor classes have been discovered!  At present, all the classes are fully enrolled. Please join our waitlist and we will contact you if a spot opens up for your family. Add your name and contact information for all the days you’re available to attend class.

Especially this year, we’ve been fortunate to welcome families to our beautiful campus where children play and parents/caregivers connect and find community. We are sorry we can’t enroll your family right away, but the demand for classes is unprecedented in the 30+ years of our parent and child program.

Our last day of classes for this school year will be on Wednesday, June 16. Classes are offered every school year from September to June. Registration for September 2021 classes will begin in late May.

Please note that while we use age as a guide, placement in class is also based on the child’s developmental stage and the group as a whole.

No credits or refunds will be given for classes not attended.

If school is closed during your session, we will reschedule up to 2 classes when we reopen.  For more than 2 classes, you will receive a school credit or online Zoom classes with Mrs. Hill.
