Playgroup at Song Sparrow Playgarden

a parent/child class


Be part of a unique and nurturing morning, where you can explore the fundamentals of the RIE and Waldorf approach to early childhood development while also connecting with a community of like-minded parents. Each week we will discuss relevant topics and receive continuing guidance on any challenges or questions we may have while the children (up to 4yrs old) are immersed in play. Our playgroup meets outside rain or shine. In the most inclement weather, we have our snack inside and spend the remainder of the morning playing outside. Classes last two hours to allow space for play and discussion.

We will spend our time preparing snack, working in the garden and participating in discussion while we give space for the little ones to immerse themselves in play. Occasionally, a seasonal craft will be offered for the caregivers to work on during playgroup or at home. Still wondering what goes on in our playgroup?
