Jo Pearce (BA Hons) has led ‘Bluebells’ Parent and Child Group since 2012.  She is a qualified Holistic Baby and Child Care (EYE) practitioner (http://www.emerson.org.uk/holistic-baby-and-child-care) and her three children have attended the London Steiner School since her eldest was a baby in 2002.  Jo is a qualified Massage Therapist and Reflexologist (ITEC).

At ‘Bluebells’ we offer a warm, friendly and safe space for parents/carers and children age 0-3 and 1/2 years, encouraging self-initiated movement and self-directed play with natural material toys.  We celebrate the season through handcrafts, circle time songs and puppet shows.  The morning is propelled by a gentle rhythm and transitions are nurtured with repetition and reverence.  Parenting issues are welcomed and shared with an understanding of Steiner and Pikler respectful care.

rhythm-of-the-day

Welcome and Tea (10:00 am) 

Time to hang coats and bags on pegs, shoes in cubby holes and slippers on.  A warm welcome with a cup of herbal tea.

Morning Song (10:05 am)

A greeting for the day.  Like a refreshing big sigh – we have arrived and are together again.

Observation and Freeplay time (10:10 am)

Connect with the children through quiet ‘holding’ of space and valuable time to ‘see’ the children.

Occasional festival crafts celebrating the seasonal rhythm or breadmaking, whilst the children join us, draw or explore in play.

Tidying Time (11:05 am)

Marked by the same song, the parents tend to the room and the older ones often like to help.

Snack Time (11:10 am)

Gentle rituals with familiar songs for snack time, lighting the candle, blessing the meal – together around the table.  Wholesome snack with rice and oat cakes, raisins and apple.

Circle Time (11:40 am)

Invitation to ‘all join in to our small ring’ to sing seasonal songs.  Puppet show.  Farewell with ‘Goodbye Now’ song.
