July Program at Housatonic Valley Waldorf School
Jul 01, 2016 07:29PM
Parents and caregivers of young children age birth to three and a half are invited to attend weekly parent-child classes at the Housatonic Valley Waldorf School to experience the Waldorf early childhood atmosphere and community. The 10am-noon classes are offered on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays. The new summer session, which runs for four weeks in July, is $150.
While children play, the parents work with their hands, creating crafts and playthings. After playing, everyone shares a wholesome snack. Circle time includes songs, finger games and simple puppet plays. Each session time will be spent outside in the school’s playground.
The Housatonic Valley Waldorf School is based on the ideas of educator, scientist and philosopher, Dr. Rudolf Steiner, who founded the first Waldorf School. At the core of the Waldorf philosophy is the conviction that education is an artistic process and knowledge is best learned experientially as well as academically. There are now over 900 schools in 83 countries.
