Begins fall of 2017
Parents of Little ones (birth to age 6), join us Fridays During Harvest and Reawakening sessions (Fall and Spring) For Parent/child Class in the Garden 10:00 - 11:15 am. Harvest Session Friday September 15th - Friday October 20th, $90/adult-child combo (6 Fridays) and Reawakening Session Friday April 13th - Friday May 18th, $90/adult-child combo (6 Fridays).
We will begin our class with a circle time of movement, song, and verse at 10:05 am and flow into a gentle rhythm of parent purposeful work (such as cutting veggies for snack or a handcraft at the picnic table) while children are given time in the outdoor garden space for imaginative, unstructured play (children may want to "help" at the table and we welcome them to participate as they show interest). Parent discussion will center around chapters in the book, You Are Your Child's First Teacher by Rahima Baldwin Dancy. Sleep, nutrition, daily rhythm and rituals, fostering play, and the joy of raising little ones will be addressed as the discussion is guided by a Parent Educator while the Co-Educator looks after the children and offers a story and snack. Our time in the garden will end with a goodbye circle and we will see you next time! Class Flyer Click here to register. Village Friday Registration
