Your child's learning environments will be engaging and inviting. They will feature natural, sustainable and quality equipment for experimentation and play.
Our service operate an indoor / outdoor curriculum throughout the year so children have choices about where to play, however we put special emphasis on the outdoor play, which enables children to understand their world through weather, planting, flora and fauna. It allows children to explore their environment and understand their place and impact on their surrounding. The children are supported to engage in meaningful interactions with the land, animals and plants and the whole community is educated in the importance of sustainable ways of living. If children so wish, they can be involved in composting and preparing garden beds, help to look after the animals like chickens, ducks and frogs, or be involved with tending to the plants, like flowers, grasses or edibles that they are free to pick and eat.
"Let the child to be free; encourage them; let them run outside when it's raining; let them remove their shoes when they find a puddle of water..."

& tapping into the Earth's natural energy
WVCCC is beginning to explore Earthing & tapping into the Earth’s natural energy through barefoot play.
Grounding also called earthing, is a therapeutic technique that involves doing activities that “ground” or electrically reconnect you to the earth. This practice relies on earthing science and grounding physics to explain how electrical charges from the earth can have positive effects on your body.
