February has arrived in golden sun, bright blue sky and sparkling white snow. Paper hearts are now beginning to appear on our frosted window panes, our hyacinth bulbs have begun to bloom filling the air with sweet fragrance, and the days are at once becoming longer. With Candlemas and St. Valentine's Day just around the corner, our hands and hearts are looking toward the work of spring.
In December, we gathered in Storytelling and Crafts to make sweet holiday ornaments from felt and pine cones and sing carols together. The Parent Child classes spent January with the story of Shingebiss and the North Wind and have just begun the story of King Winter's Garden. The children continue to knead and bake small loaves of bread each week as the core rhythm of our weekly program. As friendships are being formed in the classes, it is heartwarming to see the children holding hands with one another as we gather for circle time.
We have a number of new classes posted, including a new adult class and one for Parents and Big Kids. Classes are listed below and registration is now open online for all classes.
