Alisa is the Class Two teacher at our Castlecrag campus, and every week she takes her students out into the playground and immerses them in the kind of sensory activities which many early education experts are now realising "helps children develop cognitively, linguistically, socially and emotionally, physically and creatively."

Alisa's students are playing in the sandpit with water - forming volcanoes, making 'chocolate', playing with whirlpools and building bridges and rivers. This play, so vital in the Steiner early years, is now recognised as contributing in crucial ways to young children's brain development. Sandcastles anyone?
