The most important people as far as your children are concerned are the staff, which are all dedicated and caring, with a wealth of experience. Our proprietor has an Early Years Foundation Degree and our other members of staff are qualified to Level 3 or Level 2 qualification, appropriate for the care and development of children, as required by Ofsted.

We aim to provide equality of opportunity for all members of our group and this includes children with additional educational needs. We are experienced in working in close liaison with professionals across the range of additional needs and we operate in accordance with the government’s Code of Practice on additional educational needs.
Information about upcoming events within the pre-school are provided through our regular newsletters and notices. We offer the opportunity for parents/carers to discuss their child at one to one meetings throughout the year. We operate an open door policy so you can discuss your child’s progress at any time.
As an Ofsted and PSLA registered organisation, we aim to meet the child’s individual needs within the setting and enable them to make maximum progress towards the Early Learning Goals of the EYFS (please see the ‘Parents Guide to the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework’ booklet in your starter pack). More importantly, we believe that our overall aim is to provide a happy and secure environment in which children can develop personally, socially and emotionally, recognising that we are the foundation stone upon which their future education is built. We strive to promote and encourage independence, self-esteem, tolerance and an awareness of other people’s needs to enable children to acquire and share values which enrich their lives and those of others.
Giggle and Grow Pre-School is a privately run pre-school based in Gossops Green and Bewbush. We offer flexible childcare for children aged 2-5 years of age, this is delivered by sessions in Term Time only. At Giggle and Grow we achieve and maintain first class standards with a high ratio of qualified staff to children. We have a key-person system which enables us to ensure a planned curriculum tailored to the needs of each individual child. Our aim is to develop individual personalities in children through close relationships with the staff.
We provide a wide range of activities and play opportunities to satisfy curious minds. We sustain a warm, friendly and caring atmosphere, designed to promote happy, confident children in a stimulating environment where children can learn and develop through praise and encouragement, sensitivity and mutual respect.
We will work within the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum as a means of developing appropriate play activities. The seven areas of learning and development include:
Prime Area's - Personal, Social and Emotional Development - Communication and Language - Physical Development
Specific Area's - Literacy - Mathematics - Understanding the World - Expressive Arts and Design
Here at Giggle and Grow, we follow closely the guidelines outlined in the early years foundation stage and would like to take this opportunity and let you know about the Early Years Foundation Stage. This is a set of guidelines put in place by the Government and early years professionals to support your child(s) development through birth to age 5, when they start school. It sets out the legal welfare requirement, the 7 areas of learning and development and the expected levels that your child should reach at age 5.
I love the parent carer relationship giggle and grow have, I think it's brilliant, I have never liaised with a setting with such great communication. It has such a huge impact on the child and parent making the nursery a very positive experience which is what it should be. Bethany
As you know my brother and his wife are teachers in international schools. They are extremely impressed with the way Giggle and Grow manage the learning of their nieces and having spoken to friends with children at other pre-schools and nursery schools we are very confident that we have chosen the best possible start to our children's education. The emails that have been sent out detailing how the first days and mornings have gone are a particularly nice touch and have been gratefully received. Emily and Mark
Giggle and grow is a fabulous nursery. The staff are always full of life and make every minute fun for the children. Anytime they need parent helpers I'm always there as I also enjoy being in the staffs company. I being a parent would highly recommend this nursery as my children have grown a long way through their journey. Natasha
