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.

Craft and Freeplay time (10:10 am)

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

Observation time with Freeplay (10:50 am)

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

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.
