Steiner play­group is an all-round hit

The Northland Age - - Local News -

The Kaikohe Steiner Play­group only opened a few weeks ago, is al­ready prov­ing to be a hit with chil­dren and their par­ents and care­givers.

The play­group, es­tab­lished by the Bay of Is­lands Wal­dorf Ed­u­ca­tion Trust, which also runs a kinder­garten at Orom­a­hoe and a play­group at Wai­mate North, meets ev­ery Thurs­day (9.30am — noon) dur­ing the school terms at the Pi­o­neer Vil­lage, which trust chair­man Graeme Ket­tle said was a great venue of­fer­ing plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties for imag­i­na­tive play.

Par­tic­i­pa­tion is free, ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing bak­ing, singing songs, story time, play­ing with hand­made toys, art and free time.

Mr Ket­tle said he was very pleased with how the group was go­ing, adding that while adult in­volve­ment was en­cour­aged, par­ents were wel­come to re­lax and en­joy the morn­ing with­out hav­ing to worry about or­gan­is­ing or clean­ing up af­ter­wards.

“We see the value of the play­group as be­ing just as much for the par­ents as it is for the chil­dren,” he said.
