Wildkids Kidsgroup for autonomy, fun, wilderness and adventure

Trauma-informed practice
Trauma kidsgroups and individual sessions for children and young people from the age of 3. We accompany through grief and fears, develop strategies with them to get out of the spiral and take difficult steps together. We work both in presence in Munich and via Zoom. You can reach us without obligation by email or mobile at +49 160 94467330 in english.

We offer a forest playgroup for families who are interested in child-friendly adventures in the forest. You are welcome, whether you are already taking your first brave steps towards more autonomy, you are looking for accompaniment during a daycare acclimation, a gentle practice field or need advice as parents.

The group sessions and, if desired, individual appointments are led by an educationalist and grief counselor or an educator and trauma pedagogue.

We work in a needs-oriented, trauma-sensitive manner and at the child's pace. The group is also especially aimed at grieving families or families in separation situations.

The offers are adapted to the age of 2,5-5 years as well as 6-9 years.



You families come to the clearing by about 3.30pm and I assign a place for your blanket. This is the safe haven for your child, who is free to participate in the activities or to look around at a distance. The children explore the nearby surroundings with the teacher and possibly a large dog and usually stay within sight of the parents' blankets. Due to the woods and the design of nature, there are always moments when the children have to decide whether they want to venture a step further out of sight or whether they want to return to the safety of their parents' blanket. In the beginning, your child will walk between you and the forest. Your child can relieve tension in motion and without pressure, determine for itself when it is tired and find out which situations are currently overtaxing it.

Your role as parents is to calmly and quietly make a busy impression on the parent blanket. Your focus is not on your child now, but you practise giving your child enough space to discover its autonomy. You keep a low profile and do not leave the blanket during the group. Bring your own food and drink, a book, some work on the laptop or something similar.

We discuss the experience with the children in a casual and undramatic way to train their own reflection on their newfound independence. In doing so, we go into the children's strengths, exchange ideas in a way that is appropriate for children, and thus develop more knowledge about feelings in small steps, talk about fears and small successes. To do this, we sometimes paint, build with tools and often take up the children's ideas.

Adventures in the forest




In the first few sessions, your child will be happy to explore the new situation from the parent's blanket. Before the children can open up, they need security. They need to be able to assess us teachers and the other children, understand the rules and procedures and find their way around. Perhaps your child already dares to come to the offer for a few minutes. Most of the time, they will start to leave the ceiling on their own, at first for a short game, later for a short play. We have enough time and do not push any child, but we always invite them to join us. Your child learns to take the necessary time and to be welcome, even if only for a blink of an eye.

The process of arriving and beginning to feel safe can last a few hours or months. There is room for the fears and barriers to independence that your child or you as a family bring with you. Difficult previous experiences with separation situations can thus be unconsciously shaped by the child once again in a self-determined way.

First independence

More autonomy gives the opportunity to take a few steps towards a discovery in the forest, a dead animal or a difficult abseil. How does that feel? How can the urge for autonomy and the fear of losing control peacefully coexist? The children develop in play how far they already want to go and what they want to do as exercises.

Because we experience your children in the group, we can make suggestions to you parents. What challenges do we see with your child, for example, in relation to the day care situation? What can be practice areas for your family? Where do you need more sensitivity, where more courageous pragmatism? Which of your fears can we share, where are we unsure ourselves?
