Our Education - After School Care


Milkwood Steiner’s After School Care program is an extension of and adheres to the philosophy, policies and practices of the Milkwood Steiner School. We provide a relaxed, safe and nurturing environment for children to interact with peers of all ages within our school.

The daily programs always aim to provide a gentle transition from school to home in an informal nurturing setting where the children can choose to be involved in group activities or spend time in solitary pursuits of play and learning spontaneously through exploring the world and space around them.
