These groups reflect Rudolf Steiner’s wish to nurture children and their families as well as to recognise the importance of protecting the wonder of early childhood.
Ourtoddler groupsoffer a unique opportunity for parents and carers to spend quality time with their children and a supportive network of other families.
Together, the children learn essential social skills, such as relating to one another and how to participate in a group. They learn through imitation at ring time, to listen, and to watch, the clear rhythm of each session providing the child with a sense of reassurance and continuity.
We provide simple toys that are hand crafted from natural materials, which feed the senses and nurture the imagination. We also celebrate the seasons and festivals throughout the year through our explorations in the garden, indoor activities, songs, rhymes and verses.
Lancaster Steiner School garden
Garden explorers is our outdoor group. We meet in the school garden rain or shine for natural play and outdoor fun. Every week we share the joy of a campfire, on which we cook popcorn for snack. We offer child friendly seasonal crafts after snack followed by animated stories and songs during ring-time. The children enjoy the simple rhythm of this session and the freedom to explore the natural environment with other tots. This is a social occasion for children and adults alike and a good opportunity to meet other families and chat over a brew in Lancaster Steiner School’s beautiful garden.
