I am really interested in starting this with my 7mo. We just went to a group this past monday but it is a bit far and early for us.<br><br>
We live in Walnut Creek and I was wondering if anyone knows of anything closer than East bay waldorf school (which is great and we will probably end up there eventually<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I thought maybe someone is doing groups out of their home of something.

Hey!<br><br>
I don't know of any but let me know if you find out. I'm in Concord and would love to go to something like that. Right now, we go to a Music Together class. Have you done that?<br><br>
Also, you are nice and local! And our DD's are close in age. Any interest in meeting at a park, perchance? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Hi! I was researching Waldorf options for our area for one of our upcoming Holistic Moms meetings on holistic education.. so I'll give you what I found.<br><br>
I don't know of a Waldorf playgroup; I'm a member of two homeschool groups in the area and haven't heard of one out there. But here's some resources I found that might lead you to one:<br><br>
First, here's a website called Bay Area Waldorf Resources...<a href="http://www.bawr.net/" target="_blank">http://www.bawr.net/</a><br><br>
And here are the waldorf schools in the Bay Area that I found:<br><br><a href="http://www.eastbaywaldorf.org/" target="_blank">http://www.eastbaywaldorf.org/</a> (El Sobrante)<br><br><a href="http://www.waldorfpeninsula.org/" target="_blank">http://www.waldorfpeninsula.org/</a> (Los Altos)<br><br><a href="http://www.greenwoodschool.org/index.htm" target="_blank">http://www.greenwoodschool.org/index.htm</a> (Mill Valley)<br><br><a href="http://www.novatocharterschool.org/ncsx/index.htm" target="_blank">http://www.novatocharterschool.org/ncsx/index.htm</a> (this one is cool – a Waldorf charter school (e.g. FREE!) in Marin Cty).<br><br>
Also, just curious, have you heard of Reggio Emilia? It's kind of an "unschooling" type of school. Pretty neat philosophy, I think! There are two preschools in the area that use this philosophy, The Old Firehouse Schools (Walnut Creek and Lafayette) and Room to Grow in Livermore.<br><br>
HTH!!<br><br>
Warmly,<br>
Katherine
