Parent & Child Group

View photo gallery of Colinton Dell Toddler Group

 

 

Our parent & child sessions currently welcome toddlers with their parents, grandparents and carers (siblings also welcome), to share fun together in a friendly and relaxed environment.

 

Our Parent and Child programme will continue in nature’s playground in the new academic year so as to be careful to allow plenty of space and fresh air to stay within Covid safety guidelines. This will also give us the chance to take in the warmer, brighter days, whilst enjoying the wonder and awe of our natural surroundings at Colinton Dell.

 

Each block booking has six to eight sessions, depending on the day chosen, running term time only (see Session Dates).

Online booking system link below. Families who would like to join on a date after the term begins are welcome to join if there is availability to do so. This can be done from the drop down menu.

Activities such as baking organic bread and biscuits, arts and crafts or preparing for a seasonal festival are as much for the adults as they are for the children. There is a dedicated garden and sandpit for outdoor play as well as the carefully maintained grounds of the wider Edinburgh Steiner School for longer walks and exploration. A healthy, organic snack is provided.

 

 

Early Years Journey

Many of the children who enjoy Toddler Group move on to the School’s Seedlings Playgroup (age 2+) or Kindergarten (3.5 – 6 years old).

 

From August, all parents of children aged 2, 3 and 4 living in Scotland can meet the costs of up to 30 hours a week in either of these unhurried yet busy Steiner Waldorf settings through their 1,140 Hours Early Years and Childcare (ELC) funding.
