Meadowbrook Waldorf School offers Parent-Toddler programs throughout the school year for children from birth through preschool (3-4 years). These programs are offered weekly for two hours and facilitated by Waldorf–trained teachers.
For the children, this is a time for play, exploration, and socialization, while the parent or caregiver enjoys the support and company of other parents.
Parents engage in home-like activities or make simple crafts while their children help them or play near-by. Children play with simple, natural toys and materials and are guided through the morning by the gentle rhythm of circle time, creative play, snack and story time.
There is also the opportunity to discuss child development, parent issues and Waldorf Education with an experienced Waldorf parent and teacher. Please email [email protected] for more information.

I believe all women experience Postpartum and for a much longer period than our social surroundings generally accept of discuss. I think Postpartum can be a subtle experience that lingers and can effect everything we do as a mom and a woman fo a long time and I wish someone had talked to me about this so I am putting the international support page here for those who feel the same way I do/did.

The Buy Nothing Project began when two friends, Rebecca Rockefeller and Liesl Clark, created an experimental hyper-local gift economy on Bainbridge Island, WA, in July, 2013. Since then, it has become a worldwide social movement, with groups in 30 nations. Local groups form gift economies that are complementary and parallel to local cash economies; whether people join because they’d like to quickly get rid of things that are cluttering their lives, or simply to save money by getting things for free, they quickly discover that our groups are not just another free recycling platform. A gift economy’s real wealth is the people involved and the web of connections that forms to support them. Time and again, members of our groups find themselves spending more and more time interacting in our groups, finding new ways to give back to the community that has brought humor, entertainment, and yes, free stuff into their lives. The Buy Nothing Project is about setting the scarcity model of our cash economy aside in favor of creatively and collaboratively sharing the abundance around us.
