I have a 16 month old, and I am looking to start a Waldorf-style playgroup for families in Middlesex County (or surrounding area - we are in North Brunswick). I am planning to do some basic things with my daughter this year such as baking, watercolors, stories, and songs, and seasonal celebrations. I would love to get together with others to do this or to just have free play. Maybe do little trips to an organic farm, parks, farmer's market, or other types of things.

Please let me know if you live in our area and would be interested in joining!

 

I am also a lover of books reading.gif, treehugger treehugger.gif, and occasional soapbox stander! soapbox.gif

I'm kind of far [I'm in Rockaway...] but I am dabbling in Waldorf, have a twenty month old, and may be able to travel a few times a month to get together. We love baking, coloring, going for walks, etc.

Do you belong to the Middlesex HMN? Because I'm guessing they'd be all over that.

Mine are too old (5yo) and too young (5mo).

I am interested. We live in Ocean county, but I would be willing to make the drive. DS is only 9 months old though.

We'd be into that! Are you only looking for kids your childs age? We're always looking for new friends to do things with..

(we are in the Mdlsx HMN as well... we also do things that sound like your description!)

Let us know!

I have a one year old and 4 year old and live in northern Ocean County, but I would be willing to drive up. What age range were you looking for?

We live in Central NJ-in Montgomery. Sounds like fun! I have two boys, a 20 month old and a 4 year old. We don't believe in the spiritual Waldorf practices but do all of the natural parenting things. (breastfeed/CD/cosleep/natural toys/no vax/no tv/local food/time in nature every day etc.)
