The Hartsbrook School

Cricket Programs for Parent and Child

CgirlWebDuring the first years of life, children build a foundation of health that stays with them throughout their entire lives. The Hartsbrook School’s Cricket Program offers Parent-Baby and Parent-Child classes that provide a safe and caring environment that deepens our intuitive parenting capacities and nourishes our children during these formative years.

Parent-Baby Classes Together we will learn how to observe and meet a baby’s needs at different developmental stages, and how to create a home life that supports healthy and joyful growth. We enroll “expecting parents” into this class as well as parents with babies up to 18 months.

Parent-Child Classes Parents or caretakers accompany their child once a week for a morning that gives both a taste of the Waldorf early childhood program. This includes preparation of a nutritious snack, creative play, tidy time and outdoor play, circle time, puppet show, nursery rhymes and songs.
