Go wild with your little ones!

Wild Tots is a wonderful opportunity for pre-school children to play, explore and learn about nature through a variety of Forest School inspired activities.

Wild Tot sessions

Wild Tots is run on Thursday mornings in Leatherhead and Friday mornings in Compton during term time and aims to encourage pre-school children to play, explore and learn through nature and gain a love of wildlife.

What is Wild Tots?

Wild Tots sessions are run outside in a woodland environment. Each week a diverse and creative range of activities are available to experience, this may include woodland arts and crafts, stories, games, musical instruments, forest exploration, a mud kitchen, hunting for mini-beasts and lots of woodland fun!

Wild Tots is based on the principles of Forest School, where children learn by playing and exploring their natural environment through child-led activities. The role of the accompanying adult/s is to encourage your tot to do as many of the activities themselves as possible.
