The pre-school is very child centred, celebrating each individual child and supporting their learning and development through play.

“Play is not a luxury
Play is a necessity”

“My son LOVED the preschool – he was eager to go every day!

The staff were so friendly, we were all sad when he finished!”

Our aim

We strive to provide a happy and secure learning environment both inside and outside the classroom where you and your child feel welcomed and valued. Building a positive partnership between home and school is important to us and key to your child’s development.

Every child learns at a different pace and by providing a broad and balanced Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum we can provide exciting and challenging opportunities appropriate to each child. Children will be given time and space to explore their environment and encouraged to initiate their own learning. This will be supported with flexible resources and experienced staff playing alongside your child.

We want these first building blocks in education to form a solid and secure foundation for children to build upon so that they become inquisitive, creative, confident and life-long learners. For more details or to arrange a visit to our wonderful pre-school, please contact grassingtonadmin@uwpf.n-yorks.sch.uk


We have flexible arrangements when booking at our pre-school to work around the needs of our families. Parents can opt for a half day,

Full day – 9:00am – 3:30pm
Funded hours can be used from 9:00am to 3:30pm. Children have the option of bringing a packed lunch or having a hot school dinner. The children will be offered a healthy snack.

Pre-school children are welcome to join us for longer days.
