Welcome to our Family Programs
We believe that the parents and caregivers of children under three years old have one of the most important jobs in the world. So we offer programs to nurture and support those who care for babies and young children. In our Parent Infant and Parent Child classes, we explore parenting challenges and share ideas about how to create a home life that supports healthy and joyful growth. Classes meet weekly and are facilitated by a Waldorf-trained teacher.

Together we will observe the infants as they explore their environment and gain physical abilities such as rolling, sitting, crawling and standing. Drawing on these observations, we will talk about how to best meet the needs of different developmental stages, and how to understand and enjoy the individuality of each child. We hope you will bring your questions and share your insights. For this class, we enroll parents with infants who have not begun walking, as well as “expecting” parents.
Parent Infant Classes meet on Friday afternoons from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. and include a light snack for the adults.
If you have questions about the program, please contact Heidi Drexel, Early Childhood Outreach Coordinator, 207.865.3900, Ext. 163, firstname.lastname@example.org
Classes are enrolled on a first come, first served basis.
