Welcome to the Windmill Pre-School web site.
Our Pre-school is set in the beautiful village of Brill, adjacent to the Brill C of E Combined School and benefits from some amazing views of the local countryside. We have a purpose built building and our own well-equipped outdoor play area, plus access to some of the primary school’s facilities.
Windmill Pre-School prides itself in delivering excellence in all aspects of preschool education.
What does Ofsted say?
Staff plan activities for children that are engaging and challenging, such as creating an obstacle course in the garden from assorted recycled tyres, planks and crates. The Pre-school is very well presented. The children interact with a wide range of resources that motivate them to learn, such as, pretend play areas that replicate the home or shops. Effective assessments and planning means that children needs are well met.

See Admissions for session fees.
We have welcomed seven new children this term and have been helping them settle into Pre-School.
The children have been painting their feet and making foot prints, painting their hands, exploring different playdough and playing with cornflour glup! We have also been enjoying the September sunshine, playing in the mud kitchen and on the new bikes outside.
Class 2 have been exploring the new garden and are particularly keen on the stage, the play house and the work shop. The children have also been exploring at Forest School - there are pictures on display in the entrance. We have been exploring textures while playing with and cutting up fruit and vegetables. We have also been mark making in cous cous using our fingers and other self selected resources.
