Lindsey Bowles

It’s fun, thrilling and exciting for children. Without opportunity for ‘safe’ risky play, children miss out on building the hands-on experience and resilience that will help prepare them for the big, wide world.

We live in a society where children are no longer climbing trees, playing sword fights or learning how to work with perceived “risks” like heights and natural environments. We are seeing a whole generation of children with emotional and physical disorders linked to a lack of highly physical, thought provoking and thrilling ‘risky play’.

In an effort to put children first. We created Wildlings Forest School as an opportunity to prioritise risky play experiences for children within the natural, untouched wild spaces of South East Queensland.

By allowing children the freedom to explore and use hand tools, we are nurturing a sense of adventure and strengthening emotional intelligence and physical capabilities. All while observing children’s discoveries at a distance as to allow space for children to negotiate, interact and develop their social skills with each other.
