Our playgroups nurture children and parents alike
Our playgroup welcomes children from 0 to 3 years of age.
The Playgroup room offers warmth, simplicity, and beauty. The child’s kinship with nature is honoured through story, song, verse and the celebration of the seasons, with a rhythm flowing through the morning that the children learn to follow and feel secure in.
Children play with beautiful, natural, hand-made and open-ended toys that encourage their innate imagination to blossom. The rich world of their imagination is often inspired by the nature stories told and the domestic activities unfolding around them. Children learn the social skills of sharing, taking turns, waiting, packing away and giving thanks for food. It is within this wholesome environment that meaningful social experience and a sense of community begin to grow.
This class creates an intimate play experience for young children while parents have an opportunity to build relationships with other parents, do craft projects if they wish and learn about the Steiner approach to early childhood and education.
Our playgroup leaders are qualified Steiner educators and health professionals.
Our playgroups run during the school term on Thursdays and Fridays from 9:30 am – 11:30 am.
We provide organic morning tea that the children help make.
