How can we help make this group valuable to you? What do you hope to do with the group?

We would like to have regular meet ups with homeschooling families.

What is your philosophy of learning, and how do you pursue learning?

I love the Waldorf philosophy of letting a child find herself through play and family time in the early years, as well as a daily rhythm, lots of family connection, and time for love and hugs and togetherness. I believe this is really all a child needs for the first 6-7 years, then gently add to that over the next years.

What are the ages of your children, members of your family? (this helps us organize appropriate activities)

My daughter was born September '09.

What kinds of activities do you and your children enjoy? (hiking, art, carpentry, singing, etc.)

Music, LOTS of play acting, reading, park outings, gardening, water play, the beach, the academy of sciences, yoga, painting, coloring, cooking, eating together, playing ball…...


I am a San Fran Stay at Home Mama (about to move to Mill Valley), and my hubby and I have a 7 year old daughter. We are about to start Waldorf inspired first grade! I am also an actor and a drama teacher.
