A class for parents, caregivers and the children they love
Our morning garden program is a sanctuary for parents, caregivers and their young children from birth to three and a half years old. Morning Garden is an early childhood education program that offers an essential bridge between the child’s early life at home and their first entry into school. This program answers the call of families, offering support and companionship in the early years of parenting.
Morning Garden strives to create a nurturing, rhythmical environment for children as well as for parents. Parents deepen their own intuitive knowledge, discover new ways of being with their children and explore the joys and challenges of raising young children. Through stories and song, indoor and outdoor play, simple adult crafts and the sharing in a healthy snack, we will create a wholesome environment that weaves a community of support.
In the Morning Garden program some topics we may discuss are:
How young children learn through imitation
The importance of warmth and sleep
How finding and creating rhythm in the home helps the child feel secure
Care and protection of the senses in the child’s early years
The young child’s need to move and play freely within safe and consistent boundaries lovingly provided by their caregivers
How children’s play is their work and is essential to their development
How connecting play to the seasons of the year encourages a love and respect for the Earth
Our 2016-17 Morning Garden Sessions meet on Fridays 9:15-11:15 am
