Messy Mornings & Afternoons

We are now registering for Winter 2022!

Our Program
Unhurried. Playful. Creative.

Messy Mornings and Messy Afternoons are caregiver-child interactive programs for preschoolers and toddlers!

During our Messy programs, children are encouraged to let their imagination and creativity run wild!

Play is fun, silly, exciting and essential to children’s: cognitive, language, physical, social, and emotional development.

Each week children will experiment with different art mediums and multiple sensory experiences! Families will have access to our indoor and outdoor classroom!

Our View of the Child
Capable. Competent. Unique.

At Gathering Wild, we strive to support your child’s individuality. We see the development of a positive self-image as the foundation for learning.
By trusting children to make their own choices and take risks, we are allowing them to trust themselves and further their sense of wonder.

Our Environment
Nurturing. Challenging. Inclusive.

In a trusting and supportive environment children gain the confidence to take risks, follow their interests, and problem solve. As children’s interests and abilities shift, the environment adapts to meet their needs which encourages further exploration.
