Little Leaf is a nurturing space and community in Noosa, offering daily Waldorf & Steiner Early Childhood Programs for children aged between two and six years with trained and experienced Steiner teachers.
Little Leaf supports the healthy physical, emotional, & mental growth of young children, & is based on a deep respect & love for the dreamy and wonder-filled nature of the young child. We work to support the growing child's senses, imagination, & awareness of self & others in a nurturing, rhythmical, & homelike environment.
Our programs are structured to provide a gradual transition from the life of the home to the structure of school. Together we move through our days according to a strong, reliable rhythm of activities that balance rest & activity, freedom & form.
Seedpods weaves nature play with a Steiner inspired approach.
As a Steiner early childhood educator of 40 years I have created Seedpods to be a transition between home and Prep for children from 3 years onwards. Together we explore my Honey Blossom Farm ten minutes from Eumundi. We have a rhythm to our day and Morning Circle, bread baking, water color painting, puppet plays and stories are enjoyed. Creative play engages the children’s imagination and our natural resources are a delightful inspiration. My love and understanding of the Steiner approach imbues my work and the children enrich my life. We do have fun sharing and caring, with and for, each other.
Seedpods is open from 8.30am to 3.30pm Tuesday and Wednesday.
Come visit and have some tea.

Tiny Gems Steiner Family Daycare & Playgroup - Judy Harris
In my home I offer a beautiful Steiner-Inspired Environment and Rhythm enriched with Nature, Nurture and Loving Connection in our daily experiences together. Our rhythm follows a gentle unhurried flow and is in tune with celebrating the Earth and its Seasons. Initial foundations are laid for teaching children through the engagement of their will. Our days flow blissfully along with a strong emphasis on Creative Play where we are completely absorbed in the world of Imagination, a wonderful platform for building all developmental skills.
Social Interaction is in its infancy, so this is where we explore the virtues of Manners, Trust and Respect with our friends supported by loving consistency and repetition. I place a strong emphasis on the feeling of ‘Unity as a Family’ for our time together. In an atmosphere of lightheartedness strong friendships are born. We enjoy learning together from many activities including cooking, drawing, painting, games, singing, stories, performing plays and making seasonal crafts.
