At Waldorf, we offer a warm and gentle welcome to the littlest learners—and their caregivers, too! Conducted by early education specialist Patty Hatch, classes include creative free play, early socialization, fresh ideas for parenting, plus songs and games that delight children and caregivers alike.

Morning Glory Play Garden Classes

Toddlers from ages 12-30 months and their grown-up parents and caregivers are welcome.


Encouraging Warmth and Beauty

In the Morning Glory Play Garden, parents and their small children are invited to spend time each week in the warmth and beauty of our Waldorf “home.”

Caregivers and children relax into the gentle rhythms of the morning as we enjoy creative play, simple toy making projects, a delicious snack, and interactive circle time and puppet show that reflect the natural world and its seasons. Readings and discussions center around creating an enriching, joyful home life.
