Parent & Child Classes

What’s Happening for young children at RVWS?

Cricket on the Hearth  for babies from birth up to pre-walkers together with a parent or caregiver, as well as expectant parents.

Cricket on the Hearth is all about our babies! It is also about self-care. Caring for an infant can be isolating and exhausting. A supportive community evolves out of discussions geared toward understanding and meeting the needs of your baby, feeling relaxed and confident in your parenting, healthy movement for your baby, and self-nourishment.

Garden Gate  for children under 3 years, together with a parent or caregiver.

Garden Gate provides a warm, supportive atmosphere for children and adults alike.
