We are a full time outdoor education nursery for children aged 2-5 years old operating from 8am until 5.30pm.
Our aim is to help our children have the best possible start to life physically, emotionally and cognitively.
Designed to help primary school children enhance their curiosity in the natural environment, our after-school sessions allow the freedom to explore, create and collaborate in the outdoors.
Giving space and allowing those wonderful sparks of imagination to flourish is important for our children while they rest, rejuvenate and reset during the school holidays, and our dynamic outdoor sessions offer exactly that.

At Wild about Play, we deliver engaging, exciting and dynamic forest school education to spark, inspire and extend children’s imagination and learning at nursery and primary school age. Set in the beautiful grounds of All Saints Church, Putney, we run our Ofsted-approved outdoor nursery all year round, after-school sessions during the school term, outdoor learning camps during school holiday breaks, and wild families’ sessions on select weekends.
Wild About Play’s
Our mission is simple: “To help our children have fun, feel free, explore and progress their inner strengths through playful learning in and while caring for local nature.”
Outdoor education for the community.
Our wonderful, highly-qualified practitioners curate sessions that incorporate the natural world and the EYFS curriculum into our children’s education ensuring they unleash their full potential. Children are encouraged to explore their surroundings and spearhead their learning through a mix of fun physical, musical, artistic and construction challenges. The calming and rich effects of nature coupled with skilled adult support provides the framework to support meaningful play, enriching learning and developing key skills such as enquiry, expression, experimentation and team work.
At WaP we do not rest until children can be mindful and motivated to follow their path and express themselves. Our WaP way is about developing and extending personal and social skills that will be there to guide them through the rest of their lives, ensuring our children of tomorrow are not just school ready and thriving but also life ready and resilient.
Just Some Of Our Families Thoughts
“This is quality childcare taken to completely different level. Not only do I get 2 hour after school care for my child but my daughter is nurtured in a way that is inspired by Montessori and forest school teachings. I really valued the insightful reports about my daughter’s development.”
Danny – local Putney mum
“Guilia has really enjoyed the sessions and even though she can be a bit shy, at Wild about Play she takes part in all the activities, has made new friends and always comes out happy, full of stories of her new adventures and ready for a good night’s sleep. The WaP team has been great.”
“Zac has thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and comes back tired and happy. Wild about Play is teaching him to understand and appreciate the world around him as well as working on his social skills”
