"Fire fairies shining bright, bring to us your golden light..." the song we sing when lighting the candle at snack time.
Sweet Pea Playgarden is three hours of a simple pre-school morning. The Waldorf approach includes simple, creative, developmentally appropriate play and activities. Each Monday we enjoy free play, a short circle time, a healthy snack, an alternating activity including watercolor painting, bread making, playing with play dough, (safe) veggie chopping and more. We create simple seasonal crafts - note: we spend more time on process and enjoying what we are doing in the moment rather than worrying so much about the finished product :) We always go on a short nature walk near my home.
When: Mondays 9:15-12:15
Who: 3 and 4 year olds (I am able to have four in our group). And me. I am a Waldorf Early Childhood Teacher. I have held small groups of children in my home in the past and have taught pre-school at River Song Waldorf School, and more recently, kindergarten at Mountain Sage Community School. I currently have my own business away from the classroom and have realized that I simply enjoy life better when I spend at least a bit of time working with young children in a Waldorf environment. This is why I have chosen to create the Sweet Pea Playgarden. It will be my great pleasure to offer your children this precious celebration of early childhood and you a few hours of time to yourself. I have a seven year old son who attends first grade at Mountain Sage and a 21 year old daughter who is away starting her senior year of college.
Where: My home (near Taft and Vine in Fort Collins)
