Marleen's Caterpillars Playgroup. Steiner-Waldorf inspired

Maria Crockett. Qualified primary school teacher for over 20 years. Light and spacious house. Steiner-inspired. Screen-free environment. Rain or shine, we play outside every day. Every day has the same, recognisable routine to help children feel safe and secure: Moments of ‘breathing in’ (indoor imaginative play, listening to a story, singing songs, sharing a meal or snack) are followed by moments of ‘breathing out’ (outdoor play, outings, big and noisy play, structured activities indoors and outdoors). 

We knead and bake our own bread.

The children sing songs and listen to stories every day.

I provide a healthy snack and lunch.

Maximum group size is three toddlers.
