About Us

The Inner West Steiner Playgroup was started in 2004 by two graduates of Steiner schools. It was built on community spirit and continues to be run by dedicated volunteers. Our playgroup families help care for, shape and grow our precious playgroup community.

Playgroup Leaders
Our playgroup is guided by two leaders who are dedicated to creating a nourishing environment for children and  parents alike.

Meg has been leading the Inner West Steiner Playgroup since 2011. When not at playgroup (leading the Wednesday & Friday groups), she is a historian and museum tour guide. Meg is a knitter, lover of dogs, and a keen Sacred Harp singer. Meg’s book, co-authored with Ebba Bodame, Early Childhood Wisdom opens the door on the inner workings of playgroup leading, and is a treasured resource for families who love bringing a little piece of playgroup — the stories, songs and poems — into their daily lives

Louise has always had a passion for early childhood education and caring for children.  She has completed the Early Childhood Foundation and Art of Caring courses at Rudolf Steiner College, and is currently studying their Anthroposophy course. Louise attended playgroup with her daughter Tora from 2013 and has been leading one of the weekly playgroups since October 2016. On other days of the week, Louise works as an architect, and takes a keen interest in crafts.
