Charity Number 20204676
Our vision is that all early childhood settings are places where children are known, where they experience a life of activity and adventure, and are fully self-expressed in their learning through story, play and the natural rhythms of nature, with a focus on the formative first 7 years of life, informed by the pedagogy of Rudolf Steiner.
A Verse for Our Time
We must eradicate from the soul
All fear and terror of what comes towards man
out of the future.
We must acquire serenity
In all feelings and sensations about the future.
We must look forward with absolute equanimity
To everything that may come.
And we must think only that whatever comes
Is given to us by a world-directive full of wisdom.
It is part of what we must learn in this age,
namely, to live out of pure trust,
Without any security in existence.
Trust in the ever present help
Of the spiritual world.
Truly, nothing else will do
If our courage is not to fail us.
And let us seek the awakening from within ourselves
Every morning and every evening.
