A SOCIAL enterprise and community interest company has introduced a kindergarten with a difference.

Tree climbing, mud pie-making and building dens are just some of the fun activities on offer at the new woodland nursery.

Wild Elements’ forest kindergarten is set in the woods of historic Penrhyn Castle and is designed to inspire the next generation of children connect with nature and the outdoors.

Organisers say the kindergarten brings youngsters out of themselves, toughens them up and gives them a chance to have fun and make friends.

It’s run by qualified staff and caters for children aged up to four who also enjoy games, stories, singing, playing, bug hunting and observing wildlife.

Kindergarten leader Cerys Cowley said: “The kindergarten is going really well.

“It’s great to see children enjoying the outdoors and it really works for the parents too as the supportive, relaxed and friendly atmosphere enables parents to socialise and build relationships.”

Wild Elements is a not-for-profit organisation and any proceeds from activities and service are reinvested into the organisation.
