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.
Class 2 have been making wonderful creations with the small Lego.
The children centre's offer a variety of activities and support. Please find the links to Haddenham and Thame children centre's below:

This half term the children have asked for the return of the café! We decided to change it into a pizza parlour and we are looking at numbers using toppings, pieces of pizza and menus. The children are starting to use number language in their role play.
In the garden we have a garage, the children have been washing the cars with foam and water and fixing them.
Some children will be moving into Class 2 in September, we are helping them with this transition by spending time in Class 2 and ensuring that they are confident with some self care skills i.e. finding their own shoes and coat.
The cake making station has been a great success, the children can almost make them independently. They are also learning about mathematical concepts such as balance, heavy, light, more, less, changing properties and using language related to time.
The children have been looking after the potatoes, peas, courgettes, strawberries, beetroot and carrot plants. Next week we will be having some secret visitors to Pre-School (please don’t tell the children!), who will leave us tasks to do and may organise and end of term party for us!
We have been practising for the end of year show and sports day. Please do remember a PE kit for your child to practise changing into.
