Golden Valley's Parent Enrichment Program is designed to support families in the Golden Valley community. Throughout the year, we offer workshops and lectures covering a number of subject areas, including Waldorf philosophy and curriculum, child development, and discipline. By providing Golden Valley families with opportunities for learning and deepening of knowledge, we aim to help build a strong community of parents, staff, and teachers. Thus, we hope to bring further insight and knowledge to the vitally important task of parenting, while creating a common vision and understanding to help us in our working together in support of the children.
