Communication & Contact
Communication and Contact If needed parents will be able to contact staff onsite directly throughout the day. We want families to be as invested and informed as possible. After each session parents will be sent a small write up of the day giving them a clear insight and overview of what took place along with a handful of photos via email. Towards the end of each year, parents and families will have an opportunity to visit Wildlings School for a showcase of the children’s work and progress on projects they have invested in over the year.
