How do our micro-schools work?
Children learn in small multi-age classes, driven by personalized learning, play and outdoor experience.
Each micro-school meets using accessible base camp classrooms and field locations that serve as learning launchpads to the extended community.
Over 50% of all school days are outside with other learning experiences taking place at local libraries, museums, universities, businesses and Wildhood Base Camp classrooms.
What is Wildhood?
We are an independent social venture startup that is revolutionizing school and the future of how children naturally learn and grow. Wildhood was created in response to a growing need for a whole-child approach to schooling and more equitable learning experience. According to research studies, children become more healthy, resilient and intelligent when they spend less time indoors and more of their childhood outside in natural environments.
