Parent and Tot Program
This is an excellent opportunity for parents to take a first step in becoming involved with the Calgary Waldorf School. Parents will learn about the Waldorf approach to early childhood and experience the mood and routines of a Waldorf early childhood program.
Children and parents, grandparents or caregivers together will participate in free play, circle-time with seasonal songs and rhymes, a puppet play, and snack. During playtime for the children, parents gather to share caregiving experiences, ask questions, and make seasonal crafts and simple Waldorf inspired toys.
Each week, articles on Waldorf Education are shared for further reading at home, complementing the discussions had during the class.
To ensure that you and your child are happy and comfortable during the program, we encourage you to dress appropriately for all weather conditions.
Younger siblings of children registered in the program are also welcome to attend.
