Wild Wonders Nature Play Day Home and Daycare


Welcome to Wild Wonders Nature Play!

I am Sarah Marshall,  a Forest and Nature School Practitioner, certified through Forest School Canada and the Child and Nature Alliance of Canada and facilitator of play! I have been operating my dayhome for 16 years because I genuinely love the business of learning along side children – it is so joyful and rewarding to me. Every day is full of magical wonder! I look forward to each day with my team of adventurers, working with their families, the experiences we have and the challenges it brings.

I am invested in providing children in my care with what matters most in early childhood; to feel the warmth of the sunshine and breathe fresh air, a safe, relaxed, stress free environment where children are lovingly cared for, be valued and feel like they belong, build heartening relationships, experience lot’s happiness, lots of laughter, and PLAY!

Wild Wonders provides a childcare experience unique to Cochrane families. Combining a true outdoor, child led play program with the nurturing, wholesome atmosphere of a small group, home based childcare.

Our mission is to give children the opportunity to be nurtured in nature, to explore the wonders of the changing seasons and feel the natural rhythm of the world. Hands-on, messy experiences and child-initiated play fosters authentic early learning and is essential to development.

Please view my website for a comprehensive overview of what I offer including my standards, rates, policies and procedures.
