Welly Wednesdays and Outdoor Learning

All about Welly Wednesdays


Welly Wednesday is an educational experience which considers the whole child and promotes learning through play and exploration; children learn about the natural environment, how to handle risks and to use their own initiative to solve problems and cooperate with others. During a Welly Wednesdays session children might build shelters, use craft skills to create and build objects from the environment around them or plant seeds.
