What's it Like at an Outdoor Setting?
We recently had a visit from Patrick Morrison, Practice and Training Officer with the Scottish Out of School Care Network (SOSCN). Patrick came along to learn all about W.I.L.D. and documented our great practice. An interview with W.I.L.D can be read in the December SOSCN Newsletter here.
"Every single person is calm, kind, knowledgeable, approachable and guides the children in a nurturing manner, never judging or undermining."

W.I.L.D. is celebrating its success at becoming a Recognised Forest School Provider by offering children an opportunity to experience ‘good practice’ Forest School.
"Becoming a FSA recognised provider has been an aspiration from the very conception of W.I.L.D. We use the six principles to guide our practice and direction, creating a stable and safe environment for everyone who joins us.
We are beyond delighted with this achievement and want to thank everyone we work with, staff, parents, volunteers, Glasgow City Council, Friends of Linn Park and most of all the children, let the wonder and curiosity never stop. ”
