FAMILIES & COMMUNITY
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: Woodland Wild Things: Church Wood, Church Wood Lane (Hollington), St Leonards on Sea. 10am – 12pm: Meet at the Church in the wood car park.
Our Beautiful Ancient woodland site in Hollington is the perfect place to allow your children to play free and be wild. We have access to the church community room should we need to escape the weather, 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? There are two ways to pay. You can book your place(s) in advance for the whole term or weekly via Paypal here. Or you can pay cash on the day. Sessions cost £5.00 per child (2-5 years), £2 for extra siblings. Siblings under 2 years come for free.
You don’t have to commit to coming along every week, we know how unpredictable little ones can be. Provided we have spaces available you can just turn up and pay on the day. (Please contact us first firstname.lastname@example.org)
Please be aware these courses are very popular and fill up fast so we would recommend booking in advance to secure your place.
