Excellence in Child Care

Chipmonks was founded by Helen Monks in 2008 when she moved her successful child-minding business into a nursery setting. For ten years it has been based in the stunning grounds of Giggleswick School with close links to all local primary schools. We've now moved to the thriving village of Hellifield.

Key Information

  • The nursery is open from 7.30am to 6.00pm
  • Open 50 weeks of the year
  • Closed for a week at Easter and Christmas and all bank holidays
  • Funded places available at Hellifield

In our last OfSted Inspection we were rated ‘Good’. OfSted said:

“Partnerships with parents and other professionals are very strong. Parents and other professionals play a key part in how staff plan strategies and interventions to support children's unique needs. Consequently, all children make very good progress given their individual starting points and abilities."
