Housatonic Waldorf Valley School has a playgroup for tots and their parents, which is different than the rest. Parents and grandparents play and create with children birth to 3 ½ years under the guidance and enthusiasm of trained and experienced early childhood teachers.
At HWVS, natural is in. No plastics or electronics. Organic snacks, wooden toys, and plant dyed fabrics make the grade. Circle time includes songs, play finger games, and simple puppetry.
It's a nurturing, creative environment where parents can connect and support one another and toddlers can imagine and blossom. The great news is that little ones under 18 months get to tag along with their siblings for free.
