Wild Child

Wild Child is an outdoor toddler and pre-school group which encourages an enjoyment of outdoor play and nature.  Our mission is to create a moment each week that is dedicated to outdoor play - whatever the weather! Wild Child currently operates out of Old Basing Village Nursery School.

"Both Rudi and I have really enjoyed our sessions. I have been inspired to be more creative in the outdoors and Rudi has loved the creative aspect.  Each session is unique and I would thoroughly recommend them"

Kate and Rudi (aged 2)

"I love it best when we make things to take home" 

- Mali (aged 3)


"We've really enjoyed Wild Child and the girls love exploring in the woods.  The items we take home are still played with and it's great to see our beans growing and our bee hotel filling up. Thank you Angela, you have given my girls a love for nature!"- Claudia mum of Jessica (aged 4) and Abigail (aged 2)

About Wild Child

Wild Child was founded by Angela, a trained ecologist and mum of two. 

       "There is an increasing body of evidence that demonstrates the importance of 'outdoor play' to the development, health and well-being of babies and young children.  However, it isn't always that easy to find the opportunities to let our little ones be outside.   That's why I started Wild Child, to create a moment each week that is dedicated to outdoor play - whatever the weather - and to provide a 'bank' of ideas, songs and role-play suggestions that will get little imaginations going in an outdoor environment."

"Wonderful sessions - so inventive and our favourite session of the week.  We love your sheer joy and enthusiasm for nature in all its forms, in all weather!" - Carol and Lulu (aged 3)

"We've really enjoyed the sessions.  It's lovely to do something a bit different.  Sessions are really well planned and organised.  Harry has much more confidence with walking and exploring the environment.  We couldn't recommend you highly enough" - Kat and Harry (aged 2)

"We love the variety of singing, art and practical science and even some fascinating facts for the adults" - Claire and Noah (aged 3).
