Child & Parent Class
A nurturing space nestled in the trees, offering creative activities, play and stories for children (1 - 6 years old) and their parent or care-giver. Inspired by Waldorf, Forest School & Reggio Emilia approaches.
Rhythm of Activities
Families arrive between 9:45 and 10am, to allow time to settle in and chat. At 10am, we start an easy creative project for the adults, making toys, seasonal crafts or preparing for festivals, while the children play with simple, open-ended things made from natural materials and 'loose parts' that enrich sensory experiences and encourage imaginative play. At around 11am, we come together to share a healthy and hearty, home made snack, followed by free time to play, explore the wild outside and clean up. We end the morning with the magic of circle-time including verse, a mini seasonal story told with hand made puppets and songs that encourage movement. A goodbye song is sung at 12:00 after which families may depart or stay and chat until around 12:15. In good weather the whole session will take place outdoors.
Fun and simple activities for the children will be weaved in.. They may end up taking a nature walk, watercolor painting, baking bread, sowing seeds and watching them grow…
Yearly rhythms will be followed too, with beautiful festivals and occasions that mark the changing seasons.
