Wild Tots, an outdoor parent and toddler group run by parents, is running a five week project in Splott and would like to invite people to take part.
Wild Tots supports communities to run a Wild Tots group in their own green space in their community and have created a package of support to do this including a framework and confidence building workshops.
Wild Tots will be running five Wild Tot sessions in Moorland Park, Splott. The sessions are for the whole multicultural parenting community of Splott, with an aim to engage and make the sessions fully accessible to refugee families in the area.
The sessions will run Fridays 9.30-11am starting 22nd, 29th June and the 6th, 13th and 20th July.

Wild Tots was started six years ago by two mums – Sarah and Zoe – who feel passionately about helping families with young children to get outdoors regularly.
“My children and I just needed a space outdoors where they could do their own creative play and I could meet other parents, so we created Wild Tots”, Zoe recalls.
Wild Tots quickly gained a reputation for its welcoming atmosphere and for inspiring families to enjoy the freedom of outside play, whatever the weather.
Keen to support other interested communities and families to set up their own Wild sessions, Sarah and Zoe have created a Wild Framework that supports people to do just that.
All parents/carers of young children in Splott are warmly welcome to come along to the wild play sessions and get a taste of what Wild Tots is all about.
For those interested more, parents can help out during the sessions and find out more about how they can get involved in running a Wild Tots group in their own communities.
Sarah and Zoe have met up with local volunteers and community centres to discuss ideas in shaping how the sessions will run. They have also kindly offered to display the promotional material in their local venues.
Wild Tots community groups have enabled adults and children to spend over over 30 thousand hours enjoying wild play, outdoors. The dedication and happiness of their parent volunteers that make this happen is probably their best story!
Wild tots would like to thank the charity iNEED for funding them to run the sessions and open up the opportunity for all parents in the community to come along and connect in the outdoors.
They would also like to thank Linette who showed them around the awesome community of support and to Jacci Peach at the Oasis centre. Lastly they would like to say a big thank you to Bronia at the Trinity Centre for promoting and supporting interested families to come along to the sessions.
Splott has been an incredibly welcoming community!
Wild Tots hopes to find a group of Splott parents interested in setting up and running their own Wild Tots group and become part of the team.
