Wildflowers has an experiential approach to education and respects each child's development. We nurture children's confidence, independence and resilience, alongside awareness of and care for other people and the environment.
Each morning is spent in woodlands where children have freedom to challenge themselves and use their bodies to the fullest, as well as space to be alone and quiet. Being in nature evokes a sense of wonder and inspires children to be inquisitive, imaginative and inventive.
Our children learn from play and exploration, being in a group with orderly habits, shared reflections with adults and the opportunities we provide to extend their abilities, as appropriate to each child's personal learning programme.
Wildflowers is located near Bramdean and West Meon, between Winchester and Petersfield in Hampshire.
The group consists of about 16 children aged three to six years, up to four aged two and two or three adults.
We meet at 9.15 am. Children aged two years stay until 12.30 pm and the older ones until 2.45 or 3 pm.
