Parent Child


 Encouraging imagination and setting a mood of wonder, reverence, and enthusiasm.

We strive to support parents in strengthening their parenting skills and in creating a healthy and joyful home life. We build our class community through meaningful, purposeful work that builds self-esteem and encourages mindful parenting. Children are invited to help clean up after our shared snack and are offered time for free play. Most children happily join in following the adults, joyfully washing dishes and sweeping. Then, creative free play time encourages children’s imaginations to flourish and cultivates social skills and problem solving. By observing and/or participating in a peaceful, nurturing environment, both children and parents are able to grow from deep within, enlivening themselves and others around them.

Our next session begins on October 16, 2019.  We have a few spots available.

Our classes are meant to create a safe community for parents and offer a quiet, calm space for children where their play is honored as work. At the end of our morning—rain, shine, or snow—we venture outside to enjoy our beautiful surroundings. This is a time where children can explore the natural world, developing respect, and reverence for Mother Earth. The opportunities are endless at our Rosebud’s garden space. There are chickens to watch, vegetables growing, trees to climb, sand to dig, and swings to sway. It is not only a picturesque setting, but also an ideal environment to encourage a child’s imagination and curiosity.

This program provides the perfect opportunity for parents to learn, work, and socialize together while the children play.

Past session themes have included Parenting as a Meditative Art; Play as Work and Work as Play; and Building a Nurturing Home.

"The Parent-Child class at KWS is a beautiful experience that offered my daughter and I the opportunity to build community with a small group of mothers with toddlers or infants. Early childhood is a time when our children are learning to get to their feet (standing, balancing, walking and running) and we, as mothers, are trying to find our feet under us in our new parenting role. Molly (the teacher) gently introduced the concept of healthy rhythms and routines in a supportive home-like environment where our children delight in exploration and play and parents delight in camaraderie and personal development of our own." - Beth
