Welcome to Wild Woodlanders.
A forest school that offers outdoor adventures.
Wild Woodlanders is run by Heather and Charlotte, two people passionate about getting children out doors and enjoying the natural world around them whilst learning new skills. Our aim is to offer primary aged children a chance to explore nature in a relaxed child-led session, allowing them to learn play and explore whilst taking calculated risks in a safe and friendly environment.
Children are encouraged to explore the forest school area as they please. They may choose to cook us some delicious mud dinners, go on a bug hunt, build a fairy house, make some natural crafts or relax in our hammock. All while developing many attributes such as social skills, fine and gross motor technique, language skills and develop their emotional well being.
We run holiday clubs from a number of schools in the local area surrounding Edlesborough. Often from Brookemead School, Pitstone and Eaton Bray Academy, Eaton Bray. We also provide a number of themed birthday parties.
Heather and Charlotte met whilst they were working at a school and discovered they shared a passion for outdoor learning. Both are qualified level three Forest School leaders. Charlotte holds a higher teaching assistant qualification and Heather holds a degree in Animal Science and has level two childcare qualifications.
Wild Woodlanders is fully insured and all sessions are run with at least one person qualified in paediatric first aid.

Parties last for 2 hours each and are usually based at Eaton Bray Academy. Generally the activities will fill about an hour and a half of this time and 30 minutes will be time for the children to explore and play. However, as the parties are child led we adapt and change for each party. Parties start at £130 each for 10 children. Each extra child is charged at £10. We can do parties for higher numbers of children but find that 20 is a nice number as a maximum. Snacks and drinks are provided. You are welcome to bring your own party food, there are picnic benches available for you to use and we can supply plastic cups and plates at no extra cost. Themes can be discussed at time off booking, below is some suggestions, however we can do other themes too, if you have one in mind, just ask.
