Parent & Toddler
Walking – 4 years
Our parent & toddler sessions welcome up to nine toddlers with their parents, grandparents and carers (siblings also welcome), and provide a peaceful and relaxing time in a warm, friendly and homely environment.
Young children love the security of the familiar, and the sessions generally follow the same pattern each week. Imagination and creativity are nurtured through free play with simple toys and natural materials. Different activities are offered for the parents to engage in as well as the children: baking organic bread and biscuits, making seasonal crafts or preparing for a seasonal festival. The group benefits from its own garden and sandpit for outdoor play as well as the carefully maintained grounds of the Edinburgh Steiner School for longer walks and exploration. A healthy and organic snack is provided that is shared together to encourage social skills. Many of the children who enjoy this group move on to the school Kindergarten.
The group meets during term time on:
Monday 9.30am – 11.30am, and 1.00pm – 3.00pm
Tuesday 9.30am – 11.30am
Wednesday 9.30am – 11.30am
Thursday 10.00am - 12.00pm and 1.00pm – 3.00pm
Friday 10.00am – 12.00pm.
Each session costs £6.50, payable in termly blocks, with a FREE taster session available for all new parents.
