“It’s called the Wildspace because it is where everyone goes wild!”
When one of our Early Childhood students made the insightful observation noted above, I looked around and could see all of the children engaged in an activity that was connecting them with their wild side! Painting under the trees, sitting in the stream as their friends made waves by sweeping the water down, mixing mud, exploring the movement of water in both child dug holes and pipe creations, running down the hill and climbing trees. Today was one of those magical days where the Wildspace provided all children with enough inspiration to keep them ‘wild’ for the entire session.
It is wonderful to see the children use the space so flexibly. It gives them the opportunity to not only play with their friends but also to find their own moments of solitude to explore, read or sit in quiet contemplation. We are so lucky to have this space as our classroom!
