Tiny Wilds is a beautiful outdoor based learning facility located in a wild garden on an organic smallholding on the edge of Dartmoor.At Tiny Wilds we have a strong interest in diverse educational approaches; we are open to old and new, mainstream, alternative, national and international methods of education, to help us offer the best to our children. We focus on creative, active and nature-based learning, are Ofsted registered and offer funded places for 2 - 5 year olds. As of September we will be opening an additional space to offer learning for flexi/home-school children from 5 - 8. At Tiny Wilds we are educating children who may be going into mainstream school, so attention to their creative and academic progression is key.
Tiny Wilds operates from a wild and rugged garden on an organic farm and wildlife project during term times. We are located in a river valley on the edge of Dartmoor, 4 miles from Tavistock, UK. Our warm and secure indoor space is a beautiful, windowed yurt set in a half acre natural garden, which provides the freedom and exhilaration of outside, free-flow play. Tiny Wilds has a strong emphasis on being sustainable and ethical in our day to day activities, as well as encouraging children to respect and connect with their natural surroundings. The extraordinary nature accessible to Tiny Wilds is hard to find anywhere in the UK and our children have access to the ancient forests, SSSI land, boulder-strewn river and bluebell meadows that belong to the founders, as well as open moorland and organically farmed animals. On the farm we keep sheep, chickens, geese, pigs, ducks, ponies, cows and goats and have a lovely big gentle dog and a friendly fluffy cat.
