A teacher & mum who knows how to have fun!
What we'll do
Please join me for a fun, magical and adventurous day out in nature at Lymley Wood, Argos Hill Road, East Sussex. Autumn time is now here…. The Earth is beginning to fall asleep; it is ‘breathing in’. As a night draws in, the starry sky awakens and the bright stars remind us that it is time to find our own inner light at stirs the soul. This day, we will celebrate Martinmas. The light from the lanterns and the words from the songs are a powerful metaphor for own inner star; which prepares to guide us and shine forth as winter draws near. On arrival, we will make a lantern to take on our lantern walk later on in the day which then you can keep. We will also be crafting gnomes to take home from wood or felt.

For those wanting to learn, I will demonstrate how to light a fire with a flint and steel, and tinder bundles...
About your Mentor
About your Mentor
I originally worked as a learning support assistant in mainstream school and found myself drawn to younger children. I fell in love with the Waldorf kindergarten from the moment I walked through the Steiner Kindergarten door. I completed my Waldorf early years teacher training alongside working as an assistant at Michael Hall Steiner school. I became a teacher and started a kindergarten with a new group of children and families. I was fortunate to have several happy years there before starting my own family. I am now a busy home maker and mother to three young children.

Alongside this, I started up a Steiner inspired outdoor parent and child group to embrace my Forest school leader qualification. Waldorf/Steiner education ties in beautifully with our natural environment. It is my aim to reconnect families with nature...
