The Urban Oak Forest Parent-Class is tailored to children ages 1 to 4 years old accompanied by their parents or caregivers.  The class enables parents to become familiar with the foundations of the Waldorf method and share a joyful morning outside with other families with young children.  Children will have the opportunity for both free play and group experiences.

We meet for a Friday session and a Saturday session (rain or shine!) 9:30-11:30am at Horseshoe Lake Park in Shaker Heights, Ohio. Once registered, the teacher will contact you to determine which day you’ll attend.

During our morning together, children will play and tinker freely outdoors, take a peaceful nature walk, and explore the woods as we meander along.  Essential to our program are engaging morning circle songs, ring dances, and a goodbye circle to part ways.  Each child’s experience of the seasons is enriched with songs, rhymes, and finger games.  We will create beautiful crafts and see stories magically come to life in puppet plays.  A nourishing snack of homemade buttered bread, cheese, and fresh fruit is provided for all!  Siblings, grandparents, and other caregivers are welcome to join us.  Class is held entirely outdoors, so be sure to dress in weather-appropriate clothing and bring water bottles.  The park has restrooms and covered areas with picnic tables.
