Parent & Child Classes

Parent & Child classes form a community of parents, grandparents, caregivers and young children who come together for a morning of bread-making, free play and movement, circle games, songs and nature activities in a home-like environment our beautiful location at Moraine Farm. This unique program is a special time to explore with your child and connect with other parents and caregivers.
