Opening April 2019
We are delighted to announce the launch of our own pre-school for two to four-year-olds opening in April 2019.
Based at the fully refurbished Mill House, within our Junior School campus, the pre-school will offer an inspiring new learning environment with play at its heart for the school’s youngest children. It will be open from 7.30am-6pm, with individual sessions available five days a week.
A unique play-based curriculum
Led by experienced qualified teacher and early years specialist, Carl Shuttleworth, the Mill House team has planned a curriculum that will balance play and experiential learning which is key to the early years but with the challenge and academic ethos of Giggleswick School. The breadth of learning the pre-school will provide will be genuinely unique in the local area.
A sense of adventure and discovery
Our idyllic setting in the Yorkshire Dales gives life at Giggleswick a sense of adventure and discovery. We believe the more time the children can spend outside the better understanding their place in nature and how we affect our local environment, and the pre-school will be making the most of its wonderful location. There will be welly walks and forest school for all and swimming for 3-4 year olds.
Specialist teaching and facilities
As part of the Junior School, the pre-school children have access to the entire campus, including Giggleswick’s sports facilities, the Ghyll Field and the Chapel. PE, French, music and swimming will all be taught by specialist teachers from the school.
A vibrant and supportive community
Giggleswick is renowned for its homely, caring and supportive community, which provides the perfect foundation for nurturing happy, confident young learners.
How can they bear to tear themselves away from this happy place in the Yorkshire Dales?
