LEARN TO HOLD SPACE FOR your CHILDREN AS THEY TRANSITION into the world BEYOND YOUR ARMS.
Groundwork is our offering for the younger children in our community, a program that offers little ones some time to play in a warm and supportive environment while caregivers relax and engage in discussions to enrich our work. These low-key mornings are designed as an introduction to the larger social realm of “school” without the pressure of separation or long days, and perfectly complement our playgroup by gently preparing the children for a drop-off program and offering caregivers support as they help their toddlers navigate the non-linear path to independence.
Each session, Morning Garden founder Willow will welcome families into our serene space and garden for a simple, quiet morning held by a predictable rhythm. The children will have ample space and time to play, both indoors and out, all the while supported and guided by our team. Willow will facilitate themed weekly discussions and share tools and ideas from her experience and study as a Waldorf teacher. Everyone will gather for a hearty, homemade snack and a simple circle time.
Come to enrich your days, add form to your week, and support your family’s growth.
Friday mornings, 9:30- 11 am
Children ages 18 months - 2.5 years
Open registration + $50/session
Join us for some or all of our summer sessions! Children will have ample time to play in our abundant garden, and we’ll have some of our home-grown vegetables with snack each day. These sessions are also great opportunity for students who will be joining the Playgroup in the Autumn to spend some more time in our space and get more comfortable with our rhythms and community.
