Preschool Education

Climbing Bears
Preschool education for children aged 2 1/2 onwards, numbers permitting.

Wisborough Green Playgroup changed its name to Climbing Bears in September 1999. As a well-established playgroup, it has been meeting the changing needs of the children of Wisborough Green and the surrounding areas since 1970. Over the years the group has met in various locations around the village, but now have a purpose built building within the grounds of the Primary School, with whom they have a close relationship. They aim to provide an environment where children play and learn and extend their learning as they grow. Climbing Bears is a voluntary run pre-school that is managed by a Committee of Parents elected at the Annual General Meeting held in September. Climbing Bears is a registered provider with West Sussex Sure Start Early Years Development and Childcare Partnership. This means they are inspected by Ofsted and are able to provide funded places for children as and when they become eligible.
