The Port Macquarie Steiner community runs regular playgroup sessions for 0-5 year olds each Tuesday from 9:30am – 11:30am. Our Little Bowerbirds playgroup is an introduction to Steiner Education and can be a place to meet other like-minded parents and share in the journey of parenting. The aim of our playgroup is to develop a sanctuary of safe play for children in order for them to engage and learn through creative play and to develop social and emotional skills through imitation, story and song.
Playgroup can be a chance to nourish our little ones with opportunities to experience beauty, creativity and wonder. We use beautiful, natural play materials such as wood, wool and silk and many of the toys have been hand made by members of the Port Macquarie Steiner community.
The sessions always follow the same rhythm and all elements contribute to an environment of warmth and stability where the children are free to unfold and develop their imagination and sense of wonder and interest in their world.
