The Steiner approach to education is based on the work of Rudolf Steiner and emphasises the role of the imagination in learning and strives to offer a holistic approach to childhood learning and development.

Steiner’s approach divides childhood development into three major stages – early education which focuses on practical, hands-on activities and creative play, primary education, focusing on developing artistic expression and social capacities; and secondary education, which moves towards focusing on developing critical reasoning and empathic understanding.

Kasia Palko, owner of Banksia Tree House and a qualified and dedicated early childhood educator and social therapist, has a wealth of experience with Rudolf Steiner based education.

“I started Banksia Tree House to offer a Rudolf Steiner philosophy home care that allows for a natural, rhythmical, homely environment for children to build confidence, independence and self-esteem,” says Kasia.

“Children have the opportunity to enjoy joyful play and movement and experience the social world around them as well as the freedom to learn everyday skills such as arts and crafts, cooking and gardening to foster valuable skills.”

Kasia says it was her passion for contributing to the social, emotional and physical development of young children that led her to set up the homely and unique environment at Banksia Tree House and she’s driven to deliver exceptional quality childminding, education and care.

“I love offering a nurturing, enriching and enchanting program for children in a nourishing and peaceful environment.”

Banksia Tree House offers care for babies through to school aged children as well as holiday and before and after school care, with affordable hourly rates.
