About the authors

The book arose from an ongoing collaboration between co-authors Ebba Bodame and Meg Quinlisk, both leaders of Steiner playgroups in Sydney, Australia.

Ebba has decades of experience in Rudolf Steiner early childhood education. Her talks, workshops, playgroups and training sessions have inspired generations of parents towards healthy and creative child raising practices, which are nourishing for children and deeply fulfilling for adults.

Meg has led the Inner West Steiner Playgroup since 2011. Having benefited from several years of mentorship by Ebba, Meg has herself mentored a number of fledgling playgroup leaders. Working in a densely-populated inner west suburb, Meg’s deep motivation comes from her desire to open a window for families into the wonders to be found in the natural world (which sometimes are a little hard to find in the city), and to hold a space for families to come together in community.
