Denise and Heidi met at antenatal classes when they were both expecting their first children and have remained firm friends ever since. Being outdoors has become a way of life for them, as they endeavoured to get their own children outdoors as much as possible from when they were tiny babies and growing up.
With over 20+ years’ experience each in teaching, and Heidi being a Head Teacher for 13 years, they have both taught all age groups from Reception to Year 6. They have worked with a very wide range of needs including: personal, social and emotional difficulties along with extenuating circumstances that children and their families sometimes experience.
Denise and Heidi strongly believe that people of ALL ages need time to play and experience being in the great outdoors! It should be an expectation and entitlement, rather than a luxury. Redressing the balance between the fast paced, digital world that we are often consumed by, to spending more time outdoors and embracing all the health and wellness benefits that it brings (and there are loads!), is what Wild Play Ltd is all about.
