Birch Buds

SPACES AVAILABLE – Wednesdays – July 13 – August 17 – 9:30 – 11:00 am – 6 weeks – $75

Location: Trillium Waldorf School (TrWS)

Celebrate and support the first year as a foundational time in your little one’s life. Together we will learn to observe and attend to a baby’s developing needs, deepen our intuitive child-rearing capacities and tune into our children with curiosity and wonder. Through conversation and sharing resources, we will explore relevant topics to support our parenting and also experience a simple circle with songs and rhymes to nourish baby’s senses. Each session will end with a short nature excursion.

Apple Blossoms

The Apple Blossoms class is an early childhood education program that aims to nurture families, offering support and companionship in the early years of parenting. It can provide a helpful bridge between a child’s early life at home and their first entry into school. Under the guidance of a Waldorf-trained Early Childhood teacher, we will explore and experience nature through the seasons—playing, singing songs, learning rhymes and verses, and participating in simple activities such as preparing and sharing a snack, gardening, raking leaves, or tobogganing in the snow. In this way, teachers and parents work together to provide a model of community for the children. Apple Blossoms families will have opportunities to make seasonal crafts and receive optional parenting enrichment articles from time to time on various topics related to child development from a Waldorf-/Pikler-informed perspective.

Crieff Hills is one of the locations where Parent & Child sessions are sometimes held. Crieff Hills is a retreat and conference centre situated on 250 rural acres and featuring a selection of wooded nature trails, several vegetable and flower gardens, a newly planted orchard, and a small flock of sheep in addition to chickens, roosters, and several hives of honeybees. Over the past several years the centre has dedicated itself to providing or restoring habitats for bluebirds, butterflies, and other pollinators. You can visit Crieff Hills website here (link).
