Fall 2020

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.

You are warmly invited to participate in a meeting for parents via Zoom on Wednesday evenings 8 to 9 PM moderated by Kate Hill. This is an opportunity to tap into the wisdom of the group with questions about parenting and family life.
