About your mentor
Lorna Hendley
A teacher & mum who knows how to have fun!
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 / Steiner education from the moment I walked through the Steiner Kindergarten door. I completed my Waldorf / Steiner 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. Four years ago I started Kindergarten Magic, my indoor Steiner inspired parent and child and kindergarten for home educated families and children of pre school age. Alongside this, I started up a Steiner inspired outdoor parent and child group, called Woodland Magic. I wanted to embrace my Forest school leader qualification and felt that Waldorf/Steiner education ties in beautifully with our natural environment. I have been running for the past 1.5 years at the wonderful Lymley Woods. It is my aim to reconnect families with nature, to help foster a nature connection whilst having fun and creating magic and wonder for both the child and the parent. I try to offer seasonal festivals and celebrations, which are often shared in a Steiner school to a wider population throughout the year such as Easter and Martinmas. These celebrations occur at Lymley Woods. Over the past year I have ran children's birthdays parties, from 3 to 9 years of age. The party’s have been in the woods, in the family home or a village hall. I offer a tailor made, magical & fun experience for this special occasion. Creating magic and wonder is a key component to everything I try to do. It is my true hope that it reaches out to the whole family ?
Please continue along Chant Lane to the allotments me at the end & park by the stables or by the fence line to allow tenants to access the top path. I will be there to guide you.
