Our School


Our Playgroups are held in a home-like environment which nurtures the senses. Our program is play-based with rhythmical qualities incorporating songs, stories, rhymes and seasonal festivals. We aim to create a peaceful haven for a child’s development to naturally unfold and where both parent and child can experience the joy of meaningful connections.



Steiner Early Childhood Education recognises that children are learning all the time. Children under the age of seven are expert imitators, so the most important role of the Kindergarten physical and social environment is to model a healthy, kind and holistic model of living, being and relating, that is worthy of replication.

Primary Years

A central part of the class teacher’s task is to intimately understand the needs of each child, and to nurture the development of a real spirit of sharing and community within the class. In a loving, structured environment, with the encouragement of their classmates and teachers, the children develop and appreciate their strengths and work at their difficulties. The social and moral learning that takes place in childhood is as important as the academic.
