Garden Gate Preschool in Columbia Missouri is a Waldorf inspired early child development education full of joy and light

Parent-Child Classes

“It’s not that children are little scientists — it’s that scientists are big children. Scientists actually are the few people who as adults get to have this protected time when they can just explore, play, figure out what the world is like.” 

~Alison Gopnik

Parent-Child Classes are offered as five 2-hour sessions on Saturday mornings. This class offers parents with children ages 18 months up to 3 years an opportunity to experience our early childhood program. Young ones will be encouraged to play with the natural and open-ended toys while parents craft. The teacher will lead a morning circle with finger-plays, nursery rhymes, movement and songs. And the class will spend time outdoors playing in the elements.

Classes are offered intermittently, so, please check the website to see whether they are being offered.
