Rosebud Garden Classes

 

For babies and toddlers 12-24 months and their caregivers. 

 

Community of Connection

This class is for mobile babies--rolling, crawling, and toddling--and is the introductory course for the Morning Glory Play Garden. 

As parents and caregivers nurture friendships and provide support to one another, the little ones are busy enjoying each other, their expanding abilities, and the songs and interactive games we share. Mindful observation practices deepen the caregiver’s intuitive understanding of their child’s needs and abilities, and cultivate a joyful ease in parenting.

Each class includes simple toy making projects, inspiring readings, and snack. The tone is supportive and affirming of each parent’s unique wisdom and insight.

Encouraging Warmth and Beauty

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.
