The Wild Learning community celebrates the diverse and creative nature of children and high-school students. Their quirks are celebrated and their natural energy encouraged.

Our teachers are absolutely amazing at working with young people and run supportive small groups lessons where kids can thrive in low pressure class setting with the support of peers and heaps of individual attention!
Kids will find a whole array of calm expressive activities and a learning environment where they can finally be themselves AND they will learn real skills and build confidence, a sense of achievement and meet new friends.
A little about our story:
Wild Learning started as a bold dream of a one-woman-show doing pop up activities out of a red suitcase full of art and music supplies 5 years ago, and has grown into our permanent home in the old west end Hall in Cessnock on Wollombi road!
We have the most joyful and relaxing social setting you can find in the Cessnock Area, for kids and adults alike.
Wild Learning is community centered. We buy our material locally, employ the most creative local people and work towards projects and events that offer support and opportunity to the local community.
We also have a huge focus on inclusion and welcoming people who often feel left out of other spaces - including those with disability, mental illness, members of the LGBTQI community, people from diverse language and cultural backgrounds and Indigenous and First Nation people.
Our space has a large Hall for art and movement classes, a Retreat corner for relaxing while you wait for classes or to pick up a child and our Gallery room displays art from local artists AND is home to our piano studio with six electric keyboards for music lessons.
We also have art and handmade items created by local makers in our Little Wild Shop display cabinets and tables throughout the building.
Start experiencing something different - discover a new way of being. Explore a new hobby or invest in some amazing me-time .
The choice is yours! We can’t wait to welcome you to Wild Learning.
