We encourage self-directed play and exploration
Wildwood Days started in October 2016 and has been organically developed by a couple of mums (Liz and Bea) who like to be outside with their children. It started as themed walks that were designed to encourage children to go a little bit further, enjoy being outdoors in nature and explore something magical.
We support curiosity, risk taking and imagination
In each session that we prepare to run we think about how a child might see things, how children as a group may wish to explore and, for our family events, how a whole family can enjoy being outside together. We work hard to bring a sense of community, welcome and little bit of magic, wonder and joy to some simple outdoor activities.
We help explore sense of self, community and responsibility
Like the woodland around us, we are undergoing constant change and development. So we are continually evaluating what we do. We want to grow and improve but not lose our most precious qualities, the ones that make our little gatherings special. These findings are used to inform our practice, determine our planning and improve future sessions.
