Program Description

This is a weekly dedicated time to be with your child in an unhurried environment with other like minded adults. There is a rhythm to the morning, and a comfort to having this special time with your little one. This is a perfect bridge for both child and caregiver as you both prepare for the soon to come preschool years. There is a caregiver, education component usually done with bi-monthly parent meetings. In this new social distance world these will be zoom meetings, and are a time for adult only questions, and conversation around the dynamics of caring for a young human.

The morning is focused around the tender care and attention children under three need. We start the day in a very relaxed way, giving time for everyone to settle in. The rhythm includes time for play, conversation, circle time, shared snack, story, and time outside. This is a time to caregivers to learn and grow alongside the young ones in their life.

Background Check Confirmed

I am a certified teacher with a Waldorf Early Childhood credential. I have over 26 years experience working with children newborn to age 9, and 10 years specifically in Waldorf Kindergartens. I have been a part of large independent schools, and small pioneering schools. I grew up enjoying the outdoors with my family. This has continued into adulthood, which is why I have a deep love for the Seattle area, and its proximity to water, mountains, and city adventures. I incorporate the outdoor experience in my class, by having the children in nature as much as possible. I have a degree in design, but once my own children were born and began school I found my calling was in the Waldorf classroom, supporting young children in their education and growth. I wish to provide children with a strong emotional, and physical foundation to ensure a life of loved learning. When young children are provided a space to experience healthy movement, exploration, positive sensory, and social/emotional opportunities, their bodies, minds, and hearts, will in turn be ready to take on the rigors of academia with great enthusiasm in their coming years.
