Greensprouts, our parents and child group, is held during term time on Friday morning 10.00am to 12.15pm at the kindergarten premises. Parents and children from newborn to 3yrs are welcome. This is a great way to introduce you and your child to Waldorf education.
We begin with outdoor time walking around the farm, to feed the chickens, ducks, see the sheep all the frogs in the pond and anything else we might find. We then return to the kindergarten where hands are washed and snacks are prepared.
In a relaxed environment with soft colours and natural materials children play freely with wooden toys, handmade dolls, play cloths and natures toys like conkers, shells and pinecones. There is a seasonal craft and activity, drawing with beeswax crayons, ‘tidying up time’ followed by the ‘circle time’, singing seasonal songs and playing finger games. A puppet show concludes the session.

The first trial session for new parents is free. Thereafter each session costs £6.00 but we ask for advance booking for a term/half-term. All payments should be made on the first week of term.
