Apple Blossom Parent-Child Playgroup
Parent-Child Classes at the Madison Waldorf School offer a gentle and nurturing environment for toddlers accompanied by a parent or caregiver.
The morning begins with creative play. The children might create houses with dyed silks draped over play stands. Around these structures, they may use items gathered from nature, crowns or woven ropes as tools to their imagination. Others may choose to play with the hand made dolls or in the kitchen. Children may choose to include their parents, but if not, the parents may work on simple crafts or baking for our communal snack.
The group then gathers for our Circle Time, which focuses on seasonal songs, poems nursery rhymes and finger plays. We will work together to clean up the play space and set up for our snack. We will share our home brought treats along with tea, crackers, cheese and fruit that are provided while exchanging our thoughts on a variety of parenting issues. Adults will have the opportunity to work on a variety of craft activities throughout our time together. The morning ends with unstructured outdoor play. Each week the same flow of activities takes place so that even the youngest children experience the morning routine and begin to participate as part of the larger group.
The Parent & Child Class group is lead by Kate Hannan. Please contact Laurie Nagus, School Administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608-270-9005
