Jacob starts Steiner playgroup
This term Jacob started Steiner playgroup at the Menzies creek campus. We have only been two weeks so far but I can't believe how much Jacob is loving it already! He is a totally different kid there! We have met some other lovely families as well and it is really nice to be amongst other mum's who have the same sort of parenting ideas! I even knew a couple of the mum's from homebirth group! So Steiner uses a lot of toys made out of things from nature. Jacob was in his element right from the start and quickly honed in on some of the seed pods and rocks ;) The first session we went to I couldn't drag him away at the end, he was having a lovely time shoveling sand from the sandpit and putting in a wheelbarrow. It also turns out that the campus is right near the Menzies creek Puffing Billy station so each week the playgroup kids walk up to the station to see Puffing Billy. Can't get better than that for a little boy!!
