The first session of Isa’s class started yesterday. We are enrolled in an eight week parent toddler class at a local Waldolf school. It was a two hour session which included us making a craft (fish kite), play time, parent discussion, and a healthy snack.
This was the first opportunity that I had had to observe a Waldorf classroom. The classrooms and the hallways are beautiful. They are all so bright and full of wooden toys and other natural objects. The hallways are filled with students’ brightly colored artwork. It was a very loving and gentle environment overall. We weren’t searching for a school but just a program that I could attend with him. Hopefully, I will learn something along the way though.
Isa was very shy and quiet the whole time. He wouldn’t speak to anyone and stuck to me like glue. I am hoping he loosens up as the sessions progress. I think he was the oldest child in the class.
They have a nice playground so next time I hope they will go outside.
