about us

Wildlings is leading the way in connecting children and families with the natural world through our tropical Forest School.

We are establishing Forest School as part of a normal approach to education for children aged 18 months to 8 years in Singapore. This is because we believe that every child should have agency over their learning and has the right, and the need, to spend time playing and exploring in the great outdoors.

 

We run our own Forest School sessions in Singapore’s beautiful natural spaces to provide parents with alternative choices to traditional pre-schools. We run Forest School programmes for Schools as an in-curricular activity and after-school club. We operate a strong community for learning because we recognize that Forest School is only one part of a child's experiences which shape the adult they are to become.   

" The wild world is becoming so remote to children that they miss out – and an interest in the natural world doesn’t grow as it should. Nobody is going to protect the natural world unless they understand it." Sir David Attenborough

"I enjoyed the slowness of pace of just being outside, genuinely discovering nature and being free to explore and being able to take a step back"

"Reconnection with nature, letting go, resourcefulness, natural risk taking, and inventiveness are all things I appreciate from what you’ve done"

Our Team
