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 including Forest School, 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.
Class 1 have been busy planting cress and sunflowers seeds, the have been taking care of them and observing the growth. Following the children’s interests, we made the home corner into a shop, using props such as a till, money and real food. We have been learning songs such as the shape song and five little men in a flying saucer to support mathematical development.
The children have been very busy growing their own seeds and watching the plants in the garden grow. They have made paints with spices and fruit and vegetables and also have made fruit smoothies. In the garden they have been mark making on very large cardboard boxes and have searched in the sand for treasure! They have also been observing the transformation of caterpillars into butterflies and have been drawing them.
