Parent-Child Program

The Chicago Waldorf School's Parent-Child Program fosters growth and provides resources for parents and their children from ages one to four. Participants come together in an inviting environment that echoes the rhythms and atmosphere of a Waldorf Early Childhood classroom. Parents accompany their children in circle and story time, preparing a meal, creating simple crafts, playing games and enjoying physical movement. The children are encouraged to explore and engage in imaginative play. The class offers parents a place to connect, discuss child development and parenting issues, and learn about Waldorf education with an experienced classroom teacher.


The Parent-Child program—founded 23 years ago—has been established and grown at our Rogers Park campus. This year we are excited to be expanding it with the opening of our new Lincoln Square Campus in 2015!
