My Wild Child

Custom Join Block

My Wild Child sessions run during term time. The next term is starting from the 12th of September until 26th of October 2018. We are also running an autumn My Wild Child Family Fun Day on Monday 29th October at Netham Park, save the date!






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 2018 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.
