Hi, my name is Sandra Brigman. I am a proud single mom of a beautiful wild 6 year old girl. I am the Founder, Director, and Creative Facilitator at KidWings Nature Holistic School. I believe in alternative education, where children are trusted and respected and where they are free to learn while playing in an environment that makes it possible.
In my experience as a mother, Emotional Coach, Energy Healer, and Child Development and Waldorf Educator I have been able to recognize the real needs of children and adults alike. I quickly identified that these deep longings begin in childhood, and saw the necessity to create a program in which these needs were met. As part of the Conscious Parenting Movement, I also enrolled in several courses which provided me with great experience, resources and tools to work and empower children.
I have had the great fortune of traveling to different countries around the world, which has granted me a broader vision of human nature. I have learned different perspectives and methods in education, and varied ways to approach situations.
Visiting the Forest Schools offered me the clarity of my vision, and since, I have not stopped researching and studying ways to incorporate their methodology into KidWings programming. Combining my experience in Waldorf Education, my extensive training in holistic healing, and my intense desire to bring nature back into children’s lives, I developed what today I call KidWings.
