Parent & Child Group (A calm, nurturing, gentle parenting-inspired group)
What Golden Spirals says
A warm welcome to Golden Spirals Parent & Child Group. Our playgroup provides a calm, nurturing space for both adults and children. Each session follows the same rhythm, including a seasonal craft activity, songs, a shared meal and a puppet show at the end. We are inspired by alternative educational practises such as Waldorf, Montessori, Pikler and believe that children's learning flourishes in a calm, peaceful, predictable, familiar and unhurried environment.
Golden Spirals was created by Aware Parenting Instructor Rebecca Sheikh (see www.flourishingchildhood.com) and is currently led by Matina Karastatira at St Michael and All Angels Church, Ravenscroft Road (Beckenham). Matina is a Music Therapist, mother to two children and has attended Golden Spirals from the beginning. 'Matina loves the rhythm of the sessions, the songs and most importantly, the community of parents.'
Matina Karastatira is an HCPC registered music therapist and parent to two small children. She has thirteen years of experience working with children with learning and emotional difficulties and adults with mental health problems. She has worked in a nursery running groups for parents and children as a music therapist.
