Girlguiding in Gt Staughton

Rainbow unit: for girls aged 5-7. Rainbows grow through a programme of age-appropriate activities, trips, and adventures. They can work towards interest badges, where they can learn about everything from recycling to storytelling, and start their skills builder journey, developing skills like camping, leadership and first aid. There are even awards they can earn, like the Rainbow Gold award and the six Theme awards. Guides unit: for girls aged 10-14. Guides get to try new things, help other people, and discover their passions. The focus is on girls leading the way – they choose the activities, challenges and events that inspire them - and our volunteers help make it happen. There are interest badges such as photography, geocaching, human rights, or they can learn life skills such a budgeting, DIY, careers, first aid and STEM activities. And of course, there’s always lots of crafts, cooking and building a fire involved too!

Fully trained and qualified staff deliver a broad range of activities using the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. We are a charity run pre-school managed by a voluntary management committee. We have recently been able to make important upgrades to the setting with the support of the local community.
