about us

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 part of childhood in Singapore. This is because we believe that every child should have agency over their play and 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 our exclusive nature space in Dempsey and Singapore’s public natural spaces to provide parents with alternative choices to traditional play-groups, play-gyms and pre-schools. We run Forest School programmes for Schools as an in-curricular activity and after-school club. We operate a strong community 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

 

Our superstar team at Wildings is made up of people who have a passion for the environment, sustainability, childhood development, arts & crafts and all things outdoorsy. Their rich and diverse experiences create the perfect mix to build our community for learning, nurture the heart within each child and establish everything 'Forest Schools' as the norm within Singapore.
