"Sun Star Farm Fun & Puppet Tales for Tots!"

Play imaginatively both indoors and out in our amazing preschool play yard.
End our time together with a beautiful Waldorf-inspired puppet show!

Tickets for siblings under age 5 are available at a discount. Children under 12 months are free and can come with you and your toddler.
Ok to bring older siblings ?
As much as we love children of all ages, these classes are intended for little ones. It is a better experience for everyone if you bring your older children, over age 5, to events geared specifically to their age.
What if I miss a class?
We understand the busy life of parents and will try to accommodate you as best as we can. We allow one make-up class during the 5 weeks you are registered for. However, to keep class sizes small and ensure a quality experience, we are unable to offer credit for a make-up classes not completed during the 5 week session.
Is there an extra cost for a second parent to attend?
Both parents are welcome to come - no extra cost.
Rain or shine?
Yes, unless otherwise notified. We have heated indoor space if needed. If we do cancel class because of weather, you will be able to attend another class that works for you and it will not count as your make-up class.
Is each class theme different?
Each class has a different topic of discussion related to Waldorf-inspired parenting, the handcraft projects for parents are fun and relaxing and differ each week. We focus on a different "farm animal of the week". Of course, our beautiful puppet shows change weekly as well!
Do strollers work well at Sun Star Farm?
Sure thing! Although if has rained a lot lately, it will be muddy. If needed, we'll gladly squirt your tires with the hose before loading into your vehicle.
What should we wear?
Rain or muck boots are highly recommended, especially after rain. Please wear closed-toe shoes - you'll be happy you did. Long pants are generally recommended, especially if you react to hay/grass or a sniffing goat!
Can we bring food for the animals?
Large carrots are great to feed our bunnies or goats. Piggies tend to bite when hand fed, so we ask that you please refrain from feeding them! Please note that feeding the horses around the farm may cause them to develop diabetes so we ask that you only let them eat what is good for them: hay, grass and their grain.
We look forward to immersing you and your child in the beautiful world of farm life and magical puppetry in our gorgeous farm setting!
