“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” – Fred Rogers
We offer a welcoming, friendly and creative environment for your child to learn and thrive. We have a large bright space which gives children access to a range of resources, and we encourage them to choose based on their own interests.
Here at Wildlings we love messy play and know that children can learn so much from playing with sand, water, paint, playdough and mud. We believe that by following the children’s interests, they are best placed to exhibit the highest levels of engagement and involvement. Following their natural impulse to explore, enables us to fully engage with the child and embark on some truly wonderful learning experiences. Above all, PLAY!
We have an ‘all weather’ outdoor area so children can freely flow outside with their friends for fresh air and creative play. Our children love our outdoor area, with its mud kitchen, pots and pans, crates and tarpaulins for creating their own dens. We have a strong outdoor, natural exploration ethos, and our children thrive with the many outdoor experiences we offer.
We are very lucky to be based close to Shining Cliff Woods, and we make the most of this. We are forest outdoor based for three full days per week where we explore, build, make mud slides and have adventures. We do this in all weathers – as long as the children have wellies and waterproofs then nothing will stop us
