Our Values



At Gathering Wild, we believe that children are capable and curious learners who discover their world through play. We promote an inquiry based, emergent curriculum throughout all of our programming.

So what does that really mean?

We follow the interests of the child. We’re playful. We explore. We take risks. We get messy. We’re curious. We meet each child where they are.

Our warm, welcoming environment supports the meaningful engagement and expression of each child who enters our doors.

We believe that unhurried, open ended exploration teaches children to ask questions, take risks, and solve problems.
