Our Shooting Stars Playgroup is for 4-5 year old children without their parents. The children will be immersed in the warm, gentle and supportive atmosphere of the Waldorf-inspired Early Childhood program. They will be supported by and nurtured within the simple rhythm of outdoor play/nature walks, story/song circle, indoor play with natural materials and shared snack. During indoor play throughout the year, the children will also have opportunities to paint with watercolours, model with playdough, make soup, do seasonal handwork and woodwork. Parents are asked to be parent helpers regularly, and younger siblings are always welcome to attend on parent helper days. All parents are invited to participate in the first few sessions of playgroup with their children so that they can learn together the rhythms of the group and help their children transition from home life to playgroup.
