at Wild About Play
Here at Wild about Play, our motto is ‘Nurture in Nature’.
We believe that children develop and grow best in an outdoor, natural environment, free to explore, create and shape their education.
We combine child-led play with dynamic, interactive activities that
help further children physically, socially and cognitively. Using a variety of forest school philosophies and neuroscience studies, our sessions challenge and inspire collaboration with others and taking risks without the fear of failure.
If you’d like to be a part of our social movement, please see below for our current availabilities.
