Samford Valley Steiner School


Little Seeds – SVSS Playgroup

Little Seeds Playgroup offers morning sessions on Tuesdays and Fridays (9.15-11.15am) to families with children aged two to four years old. Attending playgroup is an ideal opportunity to participate in a supportive parent-child program with its foundations built upon the indications of Rudolf Steiner, prior to enrolling in the Kindergarten.

Playgroup aims to:

  • create a sanctuary of safe, imaginative play
  • create an oasis of peace, calm and friendship for caregivers
  • provide insight for parents and carers about Steiner Early Childhood education and
  • facilitate connections within the community for like-minded parents and carers who are searching for a holistic way of raising and educating young children.

Little Seeds Playgroup has its foundations upon the work of Rudolf Steiner, which emphasises the importance of the young child learning through imitation, their senses, rhythm and repetition, and their experience of goodness and warmth of heart.

Sessions are an intentional balance of play and guided activities in a strong, reliable rhythm to create a sense of security that allows children to enter into deep, imaginative play. To cultivate familiarity and routine for all families, trial and casual sessions are not available.  Playgroup attendees will experience a story inspired by the seasons; a short, movement-based morning circle; prepare fruit and bread for a shared morning tea; and plenty of child-led play inside and outside.

Parents are invited to join in community, enjoy a warm drink and model contribution and care to our children by participating in meaningful work and craft.

Little Seeds Playgroup is led by a registered teacher with training and experience in Steiner Early Childhood Education.
