Wigginton Pre-School takes children from any religious or cultural background. Children can start from 2 years 3 months after an initial settling in observation. The termly intake will vary according to the number of places available, the maximum being 22 children per session. Children are required to attend a minimum of 2 sessions per week, increasing term by term subject to availability.
Wigginton Pre-school is open to all, offering a wide range of stimulating activities to enable our children to learn through play. There is a happy, caring atmosphere and every child has a voice which helps them to build their confidence. We place great emphasis on good, considerate behaviour, independence and preparation for big school whilst still having lots of fun.
Since November 2018 we have been able to offer our parents extended hours to 2.00pm, children have the opportunity to stay for lunch club or continue to play until 2.00pm. With this in mind all activities are on offer to children but also visits to the park & St Bartholomew's Church, surrounding area and village shop. We are pleased to team up with additional outside support such as Wigginton Gardeners and Mini Movers from Challis Dance School.
Little Stars Play Sessions
Since November 2019 we introduced a new opportunity for our younger children to gain social awareness and enhance their emotional growth through play.
Little Stars Play Sessions provide childcare and early interactions for children from 1 – 2 ½, twice a week, on Monday & Wednesday during term time. These sessions are priced at £13.50 per session with a registration fee of £25.00 and booked for the whole term. Due to changes regarding COVID-19 we are temporary starting at 10.00 - 12.30 with a snack included. Children have a range of toys to play with and outside play in the garden with a play house and play equipment. Children are able to move up into the Preschool once there is place for them. Little Stars in conjunction with Wigginton Preschool are committed to provide the best possible experiences for all children and families using their facilities.
A wonderful start into early years play and development.
