We are in full swing with fun events so take out your calendar as you read our updates below! A reminder that every evening gathering we offer has childcare offered free of charge.
Eurythmy for Parents found a room full of parents moving through the stages of child growth via eurythmy exercises, learning the advantages of each exercise to each stage. As it should, the exercises made us laugh, made us reflect and trust and wonder and imagine and had us smiling and somewhat exhausted by the end! If you missed it, find someone who was there so you can hear more. Eurythmy is used therapeutically as well as support for our children’s developmental integration.

Babysitter Share Now Available
A new community babysitter share program is now underway enabling our families to utilize children tenders already vetted by other Waldorf families. Do you have a babysitter that would be available for other families to use? Would your babysitter agree to having you share his or her name with other parents in our community? If so, or you are in need of a sitter, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Lastly, but not leastly, we share the verse we speak at each meeting…

– Rudolf Steiner
