The Sacramento Waldorf School recognizes that parenting is a journey. Understanding child development and discussing current issues is a way that we support parents who are within our School, as well as from the greater Sacramento area. Parenting education is offered through class meetings, special workshops, Speaker Series events, Waldorf Talks, study groups, Open Houses, and more.
Parent education is enhanced by our monthly Waldorf Talks series and an evening Speaker Series event, in which noted experts and faculty members present important information and new findings on topics relevant to parents. Recent Speaker Series and Waldorf Talks topics have included what happens to Waldorf students when they graduate, discussing sexuality with your children, Waldorf questions and myths, and healthy movement for children. Please check below for past talks. For specific upcoming events or speakers, please check our events calendar
