Sunflower Seedlings Parent-Tot Program

For parents and their children, ages 12 months to 3 years.

SeedlingsCome spend a joy-filled morning each week with a group of parents, their young children, and Sunflower Seedlings Teacher, Colette Green “Greeny”.

The rhythmic morning for the children will be spent greeting friends, creating artistry (baking, crafts, coloring or painting), singing and dancing, sharing a nourishing meal, washing dishes, playing and climbing, and enjoying a simple puppet show. At the end of class, we walk one block to a park to swing and slide and run out of doors. All of this is done with parents and teacher close by.

As to the Parent part of Parent-Tot, aside from sharing precious moments with your child, Sunflower Seedlings is a safe place where ideas are shared freely as we strive to bring harmony to our lives as individuals, partners and family members. The teacher offers support with educational articles, emails, and will be offering four Simplicity Parenting Seminars this Winter/Spring.

If you have more questions about the program, please contact Colette Green at 720-936-5437 or colettegreen@hotmail.com.

February 28 – Why Simplify?/Soul Fever in Children *“When our children are overwhelmed by the pace of daily life, one can notice, simplify, draw them near, and afford them the time and space to work through their own issues.”
March 21 – Creating a Beautiful Home Environment *”If you give a child less and less complexity, they become more interested, and this cultivates true powers of attention.”
April 25 – Rhythm and Schedules *”Consistency reinforces values that are larger than personal preferences.”
May 30 *new date – Filtering Out the Adult World *”Children need to know that they have a place in a good world and a future of promise.”
*quotes from Kim John Payne, author of Simplicity Parenting
