The Steiner philosophy on kindergarten education aims to ensure each child is physically, emotionally, and spiritually nurtured. The Taraleigh Steiner Pre-School program is play based and therefore promotes your child's natural development through play and exploration. The kindergarten is the bridge between home and school where your child develops skills and understandings of the world around them through a combination of home like activities including cooking and gardening and activities such as painting and drawing. The Taraleigh environment aims to nurture the children's senses but not overwhelm them.
