Extra Curricular Activities
Wild Child was founded by Angela; a trained ecologist and local mum of two in 2014 and has proven to be a very successful early years class. We've always admired Angela's vision and approach in introducing ecology to pre-schoolers through hands-on, meaningful and purposeful activities. We are absolutely thrilled to be working in collaboration with her.
"There is an increasing body of evidence that demonstrates the importance of 'outdoor play' to the development, health and well-being of babies and young children. However, it isn't always that easy to find the opportunities to let our little ones be outside. That's why I started Wild Child, to create time each week that is dedicated to outdoor play - whatever the weather - and to provide a 'bank' of ideas, songs and role-play suggestions that will get little imaginations going in an outdoor environment" Angela Simmons (Wild Child Founder)
Qualified teacher and leader of local choir Brittain’s Voices, Kathryn Brittain runs our Singers and Shakers sessions with the children having fun singing and making music with a range of instruments. These sessions are currently exclusive to Old Basing Village Nursery School and provide an introduction to the key principles of music through listening, playing, singing and shaking!
