Wild Child Programs are a project of Sierra Club Canada Foundation, a national and grassroots non-profit organization committed to protecting our environment, communities, and future.
Wild Child’s mission is to provide play based learning through repeated exposure to nature and PEI’s Wild Child Program encompasses 2 projects, Wild Child Nature Immersion and Wild Child Forest School.
Wild Child Nature Immersion is a free program offered to child care centres across PEI. The program brings fun environmental education to child care sites, and encourages staff and children to get outside, play games and age appropriate activities to learn about their environment and the other critters they share their community with. This program is only possible with the support of the PEI Wildlife Conservation Fund (http://www.peiwcf.ca/)

The second component of PEI Wild Child Programs is our Forest School and it is the first on PEI. This is a social enterprise that operates as a fee for service, recreational program for children. The program provides opportunities for emergent and child led activities, including tool use and risky play, in natural setting over time.
