Parent and Child Class
Quail’s Nest – Infants to age 2 1/2
A note from the Parent and Child Class Director
Welcome to the world of songs and play, of friends and food – a world of beauty where parents are relaxed and supported, where questions are answered, ideas are shared and children are free to move, explore and engage. I look forward to meeting you.
Parent and Child Classes at Tucson Waldorf School provide an opportunity to support your child’s development and make lasting connections with other families in a class facilitated by a Waldorf-trained teacher. Quail’s Nest gives you and your little one a peaceful, home-like environment carefully arranged for creative play. Quail’s Nest is also the perfect preparation for the very young child for Waldorf education and the transition to Nursery and Kindergarten.
- Meet other parents with similarly-aged children.
- Engage in seasonal crafts, stories, circle time, singing and rhymes, and play (indoor and outdoor). Visit the garden and the chickens.
- Learn new songs and games with your child that support speech and language development.
- Discover new tips for parenting and care-giving.
