Parent & Child Classes at Waldorf at Moraine Farm - Beverly MA. Parent and Child classes offer parents, grandparents, and caregivers the opportunity to learn about child development, Waldorf education and parenting the young child all within a home-like environment at our beautiful location on Moraine Farm.

With indoor and outdoor play spaces where parents and children can explore and experience a soothing rhythm that supports play, imagination and imitation, our educators offer support and guidance for each family and child. It is a time for interacting with your young child for a morning of bread-making, free play and movement, circle games, songs and nature activities while exploring topics such as:

  • Sleep
  • Meals with Children
  • Discipline in Early Childhood
  • Media/Technology and Family Life
  • Rhythms in the Home
  • Children in Nature
