Hi, I'm Emma the founder of Wild Things. 


After working in education, Children's Centres and becoming a mum of two active boys I was keen to develop an environment where families can come together to play in nature.  Wild Things initially ran in parks throughout York, until I discovered an unused wooded area in the grounds of Millthorpe School, in York.


After running sessions for a few years it became apparent that the adults were keen to attend events as well.  During the pandemic I started creating activity packs for children and then for adults. 

So take a look, I'm sure there will be something to interest you!

Emma has found the perfect balance between nurturing connection and fostering risky play and exploration, in a beautifully curated environment. I would recommend Wild Things Forest school to any parents/carers who are keen to experience the wonder of safe but fun adventures with their little ones, in a friendly and welcoming low-pressure setting.

Feedback from our families 

Ruth, 2023

I cannot express enough how much this class has helped my son grow and develop, he’s gained confidence, skills to make friends and a complete love of exploring the outdoors and nature. This is easily the best class he has ever attended and he looks forward to every week with a passion.

Emma, 2023

I have been bringing my son to Wild Things for nearly three years and it has been such a joy to see my little boy grow. Emma is amazing and has created such a wonderful place to play, laugh and meet other parents. My son loves going (as do I), we have both made friends and my son really enjoys learning all about the environment and spending some quality time in nature.
