Parent Education

The Vancouver Waldorf School offers opportunities throughout the year for parents and community members to learn more about Waldorf Education, to find ways of incorporating Waldorf Philosophy into the home, and to help bridge Parent-Teacher relationships. Our guest speakers include Waldorf teachers and advisors, and experts in child development.

The First Seven Years: Laying the Foundation For Life

At the Vancouver Waldorf School, we understand that a child’s experiences in the first seven years set a foundation for life. We will discuss what parents and teachers can do to support a child’s physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual development. Each session builds on earlier sessions, and we encourage participants to attend the series as a whole.

Tuesday evenings, 7:30 to 9:00 PM.
Presented by VWS Blanka Ponec, Preschool and Parent & Tot teacher in the Grade School hall which has a capacity for 25 attendees.
