Located in the heart of Midland, Helena River Steiner School offers an education based on the principles of Rudolph Steiner. Our school provides a curriculum that aims to bring children what they need, at the right time, with the right balance of arts, academic, physical and social learning.
About Helena River Steiner School
Starting in 2013 as the Guildford Steiner Playgroup, Helena River Steiner School has flourished into a non-government registered school offering classes from Playgroup through to Primary School. Additional offerings include craft and study groups that enhance the strong and supportive school community.
This class creates an intimate play experience for young children, aged from zero to three, while parents have an opportunity to build relationships with other parents, do craft projects if they wish and learn about the Steiner approach to early childhood and education.
3-Year-Old Pre Kindy
Three-year old’s who are ready to spend some time away from caregivers explore the little wonders of the world with a small group of friends. These small groups of between four and eight children are led by an early childhood teacher who gently introduces them to the structures of class including painting, drawing, cooking, gardening and – of course – play.
In Steiner schools, the word, “kindergarten”, literally means “the children’s garden” and the garden is where so much learning takes place for young children! In the Steiner philosophy of child development, children need above all to play, be active and develop foundational skills until they are six/seven, when formal academic learning starts.
The curriculum is based on the developmental needs and stages of the child, so that the eight topics are brought at the right time to fully engage the curiosity and striving of the child. Classes are small and children develop a sense of community service which starts with the care of their own school environment.
