Peppermint Cottage Playgroup

Into my will let there pour strength

Into my feeling let there flow warmth

Into my thinking let there shine light

That I may nurture this child

with enlightened purpose

caring with hearts love

and bringing wisdom into all things

By Rudolf Steiner

Creative and Imaginative Play

Outside of the white weatherboard playgroup building

At Peppermint Cottage Playgroup, we encourage creative and imaginative play and aim to develop a sensitivity and respect for nature. This is achieved through the creation of a calming and beautiful environment, and through a very careful selection of play equipment. We surround the children in calming pastel colours and natural materials, such as handmade dolls, wooden toys and blocks, muslin cloths, gum nuts and shells. Fairy tales and nature stories are told by candlelight.


There are songs and dance and the celebration of the seasons and festivals. The aim is to develop an understanding that everything and everyone on earth and everything we do has an important place in the world. From this the children will learn to value their environment, others and themselves.


You are most welcome to come along and experience a morning at our Steiner School Playgroup. It is a great way to be introduced to Steiner education and to meet parents within our school community.
