What to Expect

Sessions are held on Monday mornings 10-11am at the Sherfield-on-Loddon Village Hall (see Location and Contact).  The hall is ideally located adjacent to the beautiful Sherfield Green, which provides the perfect setting for our little-ones to explore the natural world.  Each session begins in the Main Hall, before we venture out onto the green for an outdoor activity or two.  We end each session back at the Main Hall, where there is a chance to warm up and dry out if necessary! 


Suitable from 1.5 - 5 years.  All children must be accompanied.

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 have 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."
