Opening Day! Wholistic Learning Resources

We had a wonderful opening day for our Waldorf-inspired classes at Wholistic Learning Resources. Our teachers, Rumi Gant and Marguerite McKenna, welcomed the children into the new space at the American River Grange in Rancho Cordova. Everyone, parents and children alike, were very excited to begin this new endeavor! A special thanks to my husband, Tim, son, Noah and friend, Carrie, who came early and helped get everything set up!

Once the children got settled, parents enjoy coffee, tea and snacks in the yard. We were blessed with beautiful sunny weather.

Our Community Handwork Circle will begin March 8. Learn more about us here.

Announcing Wholistic Learning Resources

I am thrilled to announce the opening of Wholistic Learning Resources!

For many years, I have carried the vision of creating a one-day-a-week program to support Sacramento Area homeschoolers in their quest to educate at home with Waldorf inspiration.

Over the years, the vision has expanded as I learned about other approaches, like Charlotte Mason, Classical Education and unschooling.

To start with, the classes will be "Waldorf-inspired": Eurythmy and Watercolor Painting, led by two wonderful teachers. In the future, we will expand, adding more Waldorf-inspired classes as well as those from other wholistic approaches to education.

Please check out the site! I'd love your feedback.
