WELCOME TO WILD LIFE DAY CAMPS
The Wild-Life Holiday Day Camps mission is to give every child the opportunity to explore outdoor play in the natural environment and learn about the natural sciences.
We have developed a unique childcare experience which encourages each child to learn, grow and develop through the environment, capturing their imagination at the same time as imbedding deep
values about the natural world they live in.
Everything in Wild-Life Camps is focused around being outdoors; each child has their own opportunity to go out as they choose without barriers to exploration, and if they choose to stay
indoors we will bring the outdoors indoors to them!
It’s official….. I am pleased to be able to share with you some fantastic news, Before the Christmas break our club in Cobham was visited by Ofsted and I am pleased to say that we received an OUTSTADING grading Ofsted’s highest grading. A big thank you to the staff at the club, As well as the team behind the scenes in head office, This is a fantastic achievement and we are so pleased!
