Caregiver Class at New Amsterdam School

“ If During the first period of life, we create an atmosphere of gratitude around the children, then out of this gratitude toward the world, toward the entire universe, and also out of thankfulness for being able to be in this world, a profound and warm sense of devotion will arise…upright, honest and true.” 
-Rudolf Steiner
The Child’s Changing Consciousness

Our Caregiver Class will meet on Wednesdays
11:30 AM -12:30 PM for 9 weeks, beginning Wednesday October 1st
