Wild Things

Our Wild things groups are for parents and toddlers. Here, you can let your little wild things be free to explore, discover and play in local woodland, marshland or shoreline surroundings.

Our sessions focus on child-led play and have a relaxed atmosphere about them, whilst our experienced and skilled staff are on hand to facilitate activities and respond to curious minds, we very much encourage children and parents to play freely.  

Age range?  Activities are predominantly aimed at children aged 2-5 years but parents can bring their younger children (under 2’s) and let them enjoy the woodland.  

Also, for home educated families we are happy for older siblings up to the age of 8 to attend at the reduced sibling rate, please contact us to discuss this further.

Where and When?  

  • Wednesdays: Church Wood, Church Wood Lane (Hollington), St Leonards on Sea. 10am – 12pm: Meet at the Church in the wood car park.

  • Fridays: Helenswood, The Ridge, Hastings, 10am - 12pm: Meet at the entrance of Helenswood Leisure Centre

Both sites have access to toilets and a car park

We aim to continue year-round, to expose children to changing seasons and variable weather conditions and do encourage resilience. “There is no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothing” Any cancellations due to extreme weather will be refunded.  

Cost?  Sessions cost £5.00 per child (2-5 years), £2 for extra siblings. Siblings under 2 years come for free.
