wild & free childhood

fostering joy and wonder in early education


a natural state or existence; not subject to restraint; going beyond normal or conventional bounds; indicative of strong passion, desire, or emotion; deviating from the intended or expected course


not determined by anything beyond its own nature or being choosing or capable of choosing for itself; made, done, or given voluntarily or spontaneously; not obstructed, restricted, or impeded


the state or period of being a child; the early period in the development of something; a magical era of play, curiosity, and learning

Core Values
  • Children are unique and don’t all learn the same way
  • The learning process must allow for movement and child-ness
  • Play is crucial for learning and development

Play “is the poetry of a child’s soul”

Vivian Gussin Paley
