Wellspring invites you and your young child to a series of mornings of song, play and craft making in a warm home environment. Together we will prepare a wholesome snack and then join together in song, circle and indoor play. Parents share the joys and challenges of parenting in a nurturing and supportive environment. Children, especially very young children, love to explore the world with all their senses. At the Morning Garden they will encounter toys and play materials that are natural and that nurture wonder and imagination. Activities will include bread baking, painting, and other crafts that reflect the changing season. The teacher will lead discussions about the Waldorf approach to parenting and child development.
For parents with their children ages infant through age three and a half in the Wellspring Early Childhood Classroom at our Tunbridge Campus at 693 VT Route 110 in North Tunbridge.

There was a child went forth every day;
And the first object he look'd upon, that object he became;
And that object became part of him for the day, or a certain part of the day, or
for many years, or stretching cycles of years.
The early lilacs became part of this child,
And grass, and white and red morning-glories, and white and red clover, and
the song of the phoebe-bird,
And the Third-month lambs, and the sow's pink-faint litter, and the mare's foal,
and the cow's calf...
These became part of that child who went forth every day, and who now goes,
and will always go forth every day.
From: There was a Child went Forth
by Walt Whitman
