for Parents & Teachers
freedom & joy
Let me bring you the wisdom of 25 years of leading an Outdoor School and 40 years of motherhood to help enrich and enliven your relationship to nature and children.
Hi, I’m Wendolyn Bird, a coach for parents and teachers. I offer a mentoring and teaching approach that is collaborative, holistic, transformational and creates sustainable changes for you and the children you care for.
Together we’ll nurture growth and development alongside cultivating a companionship with nature to support your stability and flow. To bring this about we take the time needed to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for what is and is not working for you, your child or student.
I draw upon a spectrum of teachings from mindfulness practices, developmental and child psychology, Earth-based Wisdoms, spirituality, and my life experiences in order to support your deepening into a more fulfilling connection to yourself, your child and your students for lasting and beneficial changes.
I’ll bring you over 40 years of expertise

Coaching for Teachers
School Directors, Teachers, and Founders of Forest Schools, I'm here for you. Discover Nature’s depth of wisdom as you invigorate the confidence and joy you bring to your work. Add new tools & skills while deepening your understanding of the true nature of children as well as your own.
Wendolyn Bird provides courses for Parents, Teachers, Directors and Founders wishing to deepen their knowledge and understanding of children as well as learning how to implement Nature’s wisdom to provide greater ease & well being in day to day life and learning.
First of all, Wendolyn just turned out to be a perfect fit for what I needed due to her personal style and unique experiences. In addition, her way of composing structure with flexibility is very much the way I work. Her holistic way of bringing every moment of all of life to her teaching is also very much what I appreciate. It’s a rare way of working, and one that I greatly value.

I absolutely loved Wendolyn Bird’s visit to our class. Her insight into the world of nature and how we can use all of our senses to reconnect with it were valuable. I enjoyed the meditating, singing, sharing and storytelling. I think her presentation is a must-see for all future teachers!
Thank you Wendolyn!
Wendolyn’s knowledge of the different developmental stages of children is extraordinary and very thorough, I always feel very practically informed about what is happening for children at different ages. This has been beneficial to me in designing a program for youth and in my day-to-day parenting with my 2 year old.
