Parent Education

Children aren’t our only students.

The Brooklyn Waldorf School provides many opportunities for the whole family to learn. Parent meetings and other points of engagement allow parents and caregivers to join with faculty and staff to have a deeper experience of the philosophy behind the Waldorf educational system. Having all members reaching toward a higher ideal nourishes The Brooklyn Waldorf School community and provides leadership to children to who are starting down their own paths of lifelong learning.

The Parent Education Committee is a group of parents, teachers, and administrators who meet monthly to plan educational events and speakers relevant to the parent community. Past topics have included the Waldorf grades curriculum, media and technology at home and in the classroom, risk and play in early childhood, mindful parenting, and parent classes in eurythmy, therapeutic storytelling, anthroposophical health, and Spacial Dynamics.
