Amber Kindergarten, Aberdeen

Camphill early childhood centre - a happy and nurturing environment

Camphill Foundation UK & Ireland receives an annual donation from a trust to be used for the benefit of Scottish children, and it was this donation which helped Amber Kindergarten to equip its quiet space. Creative play, circle time with songs and rhymes, a nature walk and story time or a puppet play are all part of the morning's activities. 

The Kindergarten, at the Camphill Rudolf Steiner Schools, is integrated and inclusive, catering for children with and without special needs from the ages of 3 - 6.

The aim is to provide a calm, happy atmosphere and a safe, nurturing environment where children can thrive. They can enjoy both indoor and outdoor play that nourishes the senses and stimulates the imagination. The outdoor play area has climbing equipment, play houses, a large sand pit and a track for scooters and tricycles.

The designated quiet space, which was directly  funded by the Camphill Foundation, helps to create a much-needed balance, especially for the more energetic and exciteable children.
