Wildlings @ The Cut, Shrewsbury - Woodlands special
22 August 2018, 10:30 - 12:00 (Add to calendar)
Brand new for 2018, Wildlings is an exciting new series of FUN outdoor education sessions for 0 -5 years, being held at four locations across Shropshire during the holidays. These sessions are run at the same as our our older children events, so split age siblings can also attend.
Give your kiddos a chance to experience fire, get mucky and play independently in a safe enjoyable environment. Each session will have a theme but its main focus is to allow children to explore and play with various activities at their own leisure and pace. We will have song time and children can come and have go around the fire each time if they wish, Lots of fun things for them to explore and touch and play.
These sessions are specifically designed to meet babies/toddlers' interest in the outside world and encourage healthy development.
Evidence has shown that free play in outdoor green spaces for very young children improves their ability to deal with stress and focus attention as well as improving social skills.
Wildlings sessions will give children, aged from six months to five years old, the chance to play and explore nature in the centre’s outdoor classroom, uninterrupted by adults, although grown-ups will need to stay and watch their little ones
I'd like to book my child or children onto a Wildlings session - how do I do this?
Families can get involved for just £5 per child. A healthy snack and a drink will be included for all children, and adults will also be provided with a hot drink.
All staff who deliver the sessions will be Forest School qualified and DBS checked.
I have a child who is older and an under 5? What do I do?
You can book you older child on to the event as normal and leave them with us as we are insured for this, we are never too far away but allows you time to sit with your young ones and enjoy.
