Weekly Play & Stay Sessions

Wild Things runs sessions during term-time at Millthorpe School for children (aged 18 months – 4 years) and their parent/carer.  

Sessions currently run on


  • Monday's - 10.15-11.45am

  • Wednesday's - 10.15-11.45am

  • Friday's - 10.15-11.45am


During the sessions there are lots of activities to stimulate independent play and allow children’s natural curiosity to develop, for example, binoculars, magnifying glasses, mud kitchen, mud painting, and den building. As well as this there is always a focused activity, often linked to the seasons to help pass on skills, knowledge and understanding of the world around them.

We end each session with hot chocolate, and when possible a fire to toast marshmallows.
