A little about us

Our programme is developed to allow children to learn at their own pace in their own way. We work collaboratively with you and your child to recognise their individual learning goals and aspirations.  Our teachers provide support and opportunities during their time at The Wilderness for your child to reach these goals.

We believe play is key to a child’s development.  Play is a child’s unique way of learning about the world.  We provide opportunities for both spontaneous play and more structured activities for those children who enjoy this challenge.  

Learning environments at The Wilderness are calm and unhurried.  We aim to allow time for rich conversations and opportunities for our children to grow and learn as individuals.  We provide children with the freedom to explore and make their own discoveries whilst supporting a sense of wonder and curiosity.

We are aware and responsive to children’s cultural identity, incorporating and extending this though many aspects of our programme.

Our teachers delight in children’s learning and love to discover and learn alongside our children.
