Early Years

 

A relationship with the Edinburgh Steiner School can begin as early as pregnancy, as our range of groups encourage bumps, babies and young children to come together to enjoy group and individual play, crafts, baking and songs.

In our Early Years provision the focus is on play and activities embedded in the cycle of seasons and festivals.

Attended without parents/carers, Seedlings (formerly known as ‘Playgroup’) welcomes up to ten toddlers, and enables them to develop independence, meet new friends, learn social skills and have fun.

This group can provide a stepping stone before children make the progression into Kindergarten at the age of 3½ years.

The rhythm of daily life in the Kindergarten is simple and unhurried without the notions of ‘achievement’,’ success’, or ‘failure’.
