Parent & Child
Age 0 - 3
All parents and carers are welcome to attend our Parent & Child Group with children aged nought to about 3½. Pregnant mums are also very welcome. This group provides a wonderful space as well as an opportunity for very small children and their parents to experience a ‘taste’ of a Steiner group setting.
Through playing with simple toys and natural objects in a warm and homely environment, the children can explore and develop their independence and social skills. Joining in with songs and rhymes, listening to a simple story with puppets, and sharing a snack together help the children to learn how to participate in a group. By imitating the adults, they can help with domestic activities like making bread and tidying up, all in a natural and unhurried context. For parents the sessions provide a friendly and relaxed space for playing with their children and for sharing their experiences and questions with other parents and the group leader.
Please note that due to the popularity of our Parent & Child Groups you will need to reserve a place. Places must be booked in advance and payment is made a term in advance. We do not offer ‘drop in’ sessions. Please call the school office for more information.
