Glenaeon Rudolf Steiner School

Steiner Playgroups, Family Daycares & Preschools

For parents of young children it is often more practical to begin your child's Steiner education closer to home. Some Steiner influenced playgroups and family daycares are listed below for your convenience. Please note, Glenaeon does not run or control any of these groups. Please check with each group leader for their qualifications and programmes.
