Welcome to Miro House
Providing children with meaningful learning experiences in an environment of love and warmth.
Ages 3 to 6 years
We provide a warm and secure homelike environment where childhood is honoured, and children are given the gift of time. The physical, emotional, social, and spiritual nature of each child is carefully nurtured.
Children’s early learning is developed naturally through their play and the activities that are offered in the kindergarten. Daily activities include baking bread, caring for the environment, drawing, painting and building.
Early literacy and numeracy skills are developed gently and naturally in our environment, laying strong foundations for later academic learning when children enter the Waikato Waldorf School. There is a strong emphasis on oral language through storytelling and during daily ‘circle time’ music and movement are used to develop physical and social skills the children will use throughout their educational journey.
Our beautiful park-like setting enables children to discover and explore nature as they play and engage with a variety of natural resources. Children are supported to climb trees, build with wood and ropes, work with water, mud and sand, and will experience the seasonal changes and abundance of the flower and vegetable gardens.
The purpose of Steiner education is to strengthen the child to meet not only the challenges of kindergarten and school, but those of life.
“Children benefit from curriculum planning and assessment that is based on the Rudolf Steiner philosophy. The programme successfully engages children’s imagination and creativity, and fosters their wonder for the environment.” ERO Report, 2017
