Waldorf-trained teacher, educator, and author of Heaven on Earth: A Handbook for Parents of Young Children, Sharifa Oppenheimer, will offer a two-day workshop on the fundamentals of healthy brain development, and how we, as parents, can create home environments that promote the fullest whole-brain development for our children.
Sharifa studied with Joan Almon as her mentor and visited her classroom at Acorn Hill for a week each spring and fall for many years.
We know how deeply nutrition affects healthy brain development, and yet have we ever considered that each aspect of the young child’s life is also ‘nutritional”? Because the young child is at-one with their environment, they absorb the totality of their environment at the most profound level, in a way similar to the digestive system which absorbs everything that is taken-in. We will take an in-depth look at the development of the brain, beginning in pregnancy, and extending through childhood. Come learn the fundamentals of healthy brain development, and how to create home environments that promote the fullest whole-brain development.
