Parent and Child Group


Our Parent and Child groups are the perfect gentle introduction to Steiner education and a great way to meet other families during the magical first years of your child's life.

Both friendly and informative, these groups are for parents and carers of children aged 0-3 or 4 years old, depending on kindergarten readiness, and are held both outdoors in our beautiful woodland and indoors in the light-filled Willow Room. 

We offer natural play, a craft activity, seasonal ring-time with songs and nursery rhymes, and a healthy organic snack which helps to leave you and your child feeling nourished and relaxed.

Children in our sessions are not over-stimulated and are allowed to explore, play and develop at their own unique pace in the way nature intended. 

Both Woodland and Willow groups support the unfolding of young children's curiosity, imagination and social skills, without pressure or expectation.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our groups!


Here at Alder Bridge School we have our magical school woodland with plenty of space for the children to grow and flourish through gentle rhythmic activities in connection to nature.


The two-hour session includes plenty of time for free play with natural toys and objects from our surroundings, some seasonal songs, and a healthy snack. A seasonal craft activity will keep the grown-ups busy while the children can join in or play alongside.


Our Woodland sessions run every Wednesday 9.30 – 11.30 and costs £5 per family.
Our groups are for up to 10 parents/carers and their child/children.

The Indoor sessions run every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 9.30 - 11.30

Groups for this session are for a maximum of 6 parents/carers and their child/children.
