Wild Things is passionate about getting children and parents outdoors to explore, develop their imagination, and be creative. Wild Things run a range of sessions from weekly play and stay sessions, family sessions during holidays and at weekends, sessions for nurseries, pre-schools, primary & secondary schools. There are also opportunities for adults to come without their children during adults-only sessions!​

Activities are wide-ranging and may include bug hunting, climbing trees, learning about nature, messy play, storytelling and singing, using their imagination and den building.  The children learn how to move around the outdoors safely and how to take safe risks. Wild Things will inspire children and parents – a stick will never just be a stick again…

Wild Things also helps children and parents to slow down, observe, be aware and reconnect to the outdoors.
