At Wild Wonder, we believe in the value of supporting children’s outdoor, active and “risky” play. We believe that child-directed play is a powerful means through which place-based learning and holistic development can occur. Children at forest school are provided with opportunities to build a positive relationship with the land, to our dedicated educators, to their community of peers, and to themselves. They develop physical and mental resilience, cooperation, and problem-solving skills. By maintaining an educator to child ratio of 1:6, we are able to provide adequate supervision to support “risky play” activities, such as tool use. We embrace an ethic of respect for living things and for the people upon whose traditional territory we live, work and play.
