Welcome to Shipton Pre-School and Toddlers

Shipton preschool is a friendly community based preschool located in the village of Shipton-by-Beningbrough, York. In September 2017 we have moved premises to a newly refurbished building at Forest of Galtres Primary School. Creating a new early years foundation with the school. Although Shipton Pre School will continue to be independently run we will be able to take advantage of the schools facilities. Our staff are highly qualified and are dedicated to the care, development and education of children from the age of two to four years. 

Mission Statement

"Shipton Preschool aims to provide a child centred, welcoming and supportive environment where each child is valued and encouraged to explore, develop and learn through play. We provide stimulating age appropriate play and activities to promote children's independence and creativity." 

Studies have shown that children who attend 
pre-school are more confident as they have mixed with other children from an early age, and can also go on to do better at school.

Shipton Pre-School works hard to help your child have a great start, having many opportunities to learn through play.
So come along and meet the staff and children.

Free taster session available, please give us a call.

Funding available for children aged over 3 years and, if eligible, funding when they reach 2 years of age. - please contact us for further information.
