Wild Things WOOdland play 

Wild Things Woodland Play is a group for babies and pre-schoolers.

For the babies there will be dedicated areas and activities set up to help stimulate their senses. They will play in nature, with nature, exploring and developing their awareness of the world around them.


There will also be lots of child-led activities and play opportunities for pre-school children.


The children get chance to stimulate their senses, practice fine & gross motor skills, develop their language skills and social skills.

It’s also a group for parents to come together to meet others and to enjoy some nature based crafts.
