My Wild Child

My Wild Child sessions will be returning 22nd & 23rd February 2017, take a look at our calendar for dates & details.

Thanks to players of People's Postcode Lottery, we have funding to provide wild play sessions for pre-school children across Bristol!

Avon Wildlife Trust are providing fun outdoor games and activities in 2016/17 including: wildlife conservation activities, wild-art, mini-beast quests, wild songs and stories and much more!

Each session combines a structured, nature-focused task followed by child-led free play.

Our sessions will allow your child to:

  • Learn about nature through songs, stories and hands-on practical activities
  • Develop confidence through child-led exploration and play
  • Develop communication skills including speaking and listening

Who can attend?
Term-time sessions are aimed at toddlers aged 2, 3 and 4.
Younger siblings are welcome. Parents must supervise their children at all times.
