Description

Julie Fellom, M.Ed the Founder and Director of Neighborhood Playgarden (a play-based, parent-participation preschool in San Francisco), invites educators and child care providers in the Bay Area to join her for a small group discussion and meet and greet at her school.

Julie has been a Waldorf early childhood educator for 25 years. In addition to leading teaching at Neighborhood Playgarden, Julie also developed Diaper Free Toddlers in 2006 as a response to parents’ questions about toddlers’ toilet learning. Since 2006, Julie’s Diaper Free Toddlers classes have helped over 5000 SF families successfully reduce environmental waste while meeting the developmental needs of toddlers’ quest for self determination and independence in toileting. Julie is an active participant in the San Francisco Family Child Care Association.

Julie is excited to host a chat at her home to discuss her experience of starting and running her own program in-home preschool and to connect with other child care providers and educators in the community.

Some of the topics Julie will discuss include:

  • The decision to start her own in-home program

  • The program philosophy and its change over time Neighborhood Playgarden is a Developing Representative Center for Lifeways and a developing member school of the Waldorf Early Childhood Association of North America)

  • Parent participation in the program and community building

  • The design of the space and its change over time

  • Work life balance with a school in her home
