"At the heart of every child is a unique genius and personality. We need to allow that spark genius to catch fire, to burn brightly and shine"  -Michael Morpurgo

At Wildlings we truly value the deep levels of curiosity that every child brings with them. Children are encouraged to lead the way in their learning while our skilled team of staff guide them in their exploration of the world around them.

Wildlings offers an environment rich in awe and wonder. We are unique in the local area, offering places in both our light and bright hall setting, and in our beautiful, ancient woodland setting.​ We have a strong team of dedicated, knowledgeable early years educators and teachers, who really care about children and believe in our unique ethos. We keep numbers of children low and have higher than required staff to child ratio, as a consequence our highly qualified and experienced team are able to effectively get to know, observe and assess every child. They are always on hand to enhance provision and extend children's learning and thinking, whilst giving children the freedom to manage their own challenges and build on what they already know. ​

We believe that children thrive in an environment which values their own uniqueness, building on their strengths, interests and curiosities through skilled support and the provision of opportunities to grow emotionally, socially, and creatively. By developing strong relationships, we support children in developing new abilities so that they become confident, resilient, and creative critical thinkers, building the foundations for a lifelong love of learning.
