Gissing Children's Centre has been running since 1982 for children in their early years.  We offer a rich and nurturing learning environment, in an idyllic rural location, which includes safe and closely supervised access to the adjacent small woodland area. 

We have developed a Forest School as part of the pre-school which runs once a week, all year round.  We deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum encouraging, among other things, self-confidence, creativity, mutual respect and kindness in the children in preparation for school and for life. 

We welcome children from all backgrounds and abilities, including children with additional requirements or disabilities and we will go that extra mile to ensure inclusion and the best possible experience for everyone.  We accept children from the age of two until they start school and we operate during term time only.   

We have received 4 consecutive gradings of 'outstanding' from Ofsted in recent years, the last being in December 2019.
