The early stages in a child’s life are when the educational foundations are laid for everything that follows and in the Pre-School at Ghyll Royd this is our focus. Children are encouraged to become independent, secure and happy individuals who approach learning with curiosity, enthusiasm and energy.
The Pre-School is situated within the main school building and offers high quality education for children aged two to four. The children have access to two well resourced classrooms and a new purpose built outdoor environment where they enjoy the excellent learning opportunities made available to them.
Fun whatever the weather!
All the children have their own set of waterproofs to ensure they can take full advantage of our inspirational outdoor classroom where children’s natural curiosity and creativity is developed (whatever the weather!). Where else can your child climb a climbing wall, hoist up toys, splash in a stream, dig for worms, look for fairies, build a den, make a potion, cycle on the roadway or build a house with bricks, all within a safe, supported and secure environment?
The Pre-School is very much a part of the school with the children accessing the main school facilities and taking part in much of the school’s daily life. Music and PE sessions are taught by specialist teachers on a weekly basis. These links between the two parts of the school ensures a smooth transition from the Preschool into the main school.
