Did you know that there is a Rudolf Steiner Playgroup for the younger child in Taupo? It’s held upstairs in the kindy house on a Monday morning and on a Tuesday when the older kindergarten children are off on Bush Kindy adventures, playgroup makes use of the space downstairs.
This is a lovely opportunity for Mum’s, Dad’s, Grandparent’s and Littlies to gather in the Kindy house and share a relaxed friendly time together.
It’s a chance to meet others, learn new crafts sympathetic to the Steiner philosophy and gradually come to understand more about Rudolf Steiner education. The morning is led by April Smith and other wonderful mum’s who have been involved with Steiner education for many years.
There is a simple rhythm to the morning which includes a time for singing some songs, sharing a snack of fruit and freshly baked bread rolls (brought up to us by some of the Kindergarten children from downstairs) and a story. We finish our morning with exploring the kindergarten back yard garden when it’s not being used by the older kindergarten children.
Also this is an opportunity for you and the children to meet the Kindergarten teachers, as quite frequently one of the four kaiako will attend the morning. This is particularly valuable for your child in the transition into the Kindergarten itself if you have chosen Four Seasons Kindergarten for your child.
So, if this sounds appealing to you, please come and join us upstairs at the Four Seasons Kindergarten on a Monday morning from 9am onwards to 11am. Bring some fruit to share and the cost for each session is $5, or you may pay per term which reduces the cost to $4 per session.
Please visit the Playgroup’s facebook page for more information.
Our kindergarten grew into the place it is now thanks to the vision and dedication of many parents who supported the Four Seasons Playgroup over many years. Our thanks and gratitude to those who shared in the vision for a Steiner approach to educating children in Taupo.
