Buttercup / Parent Child Class
Creative play is like a spring that bubbles up from deep within a child.
An introduction to Waldorf Education
Linden Waldorf School’s Buttercup Parent/Child Playgroup is a treasured experience for families where young children — accompanied by a caregiver and guided by a Waldorf teacher — enjoy a rhythmic morning of song, movement, organic snacks, storytelling, puppetry, nature walks, and free play.
The unhurried pace of the Buttercup experience provides an opportunity to slow down, enjoy our children and each other, and bring a precious moment of peace into our lives. As a condensed model of our early childhood classrooms, this weekly class serves to familiarize interested families with Waldorf education.
Approximately eight families participate in each class. Children will benefit most from this program if they are 1½ to 3½ years old. Classes are offered on either of two days a week. The 2017-18 program is currently full, and we are currently enrolling for the 2018-19 school year.
Program fees for 2018-19 are $850/full year and $450/semester session. There is no application fee.
