Wigginton Pre-School takes children from any religious or cultural background. Children can start from 2 years 6 months after an initial settling in observation. The termly intake will vary according to the number of places available, the maximum being 28 children in the building. Children are required to attend a minimum of 2 sessions per week, increasing term by term subject to availability and we do not provide duo setting provision.
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.

We have continued to promote some elements of hygiene from the Coronavirus outbreak in 2020, due to the fact the hall is hired out for local groups we complete daily cleaning surfaces where individuals touch, such as door handles & work surfaces.
All visits need to be made in advance to avoid the children getting upset and all visitors will be signed in.
