WE PUT THE DIRT BACK IN CHILDHOOD!

In 2017, we started Wildlings Forest School because we wanted our children back outdoors and given the freedom and trust that we had as children.

In our programs you may find children in the mud, climbing trees, whittling with pocket knives, building rafts and falling in love with fire.

Because children will never learn to love the earth if they don’t have a childhood in it.

 

Here's what makes us a little different to other children's programs:

We are child-led:  Each child decides what skills they would like to learn and are supported by our highly skilled and qualified facilitators

We are hands-on:  Children are taught the safe use of hand tools and are encouraged to use their natural instincts to explore their surroundings freely

We are wild! All of our programs take place outdoors where children can build a strong connection with the environment

We are so happy you're here and can't wait to hear what your kids think about our programs.

STAY WILD!

HERE'S WHAT SOME PARENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT US

"Heading to Wildlings playgroup and forest kindy with my two young boys are the highlights of our week. We treasure the people, songs, stories, games and the beautiful locations" Sally 

"My boys had the time of their lives at Wildlings. It’s a fabulous location, the staff are great and my kids learnt so much. They would happily spend all day everyday there." Charlotte 

"My son and his friend had the most wonderful morning building a raft at Wildings Forest school at Nambour. Picked them up covered in mud having had a great time. Just how boys and girls should be. My son also attended the primitive weapons workshop that he also enjoyed. It is a great day out when on Sunshine Coast for holidays." Shelley

"My daughter found a massive earth worm at home this morning and built it a house, the way she 'learnt at Forest Kindy' yesterday. Love what you gals are teaching them!"  Natasha
