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.

Preschool sessions run
Monday to Thursday as follows:
See Admissions for session fees.
The children have shown a high interest in finding treasure and to support this we created a ‘Treasure Island’ outside. They have also experienced walking the plank and reading a treasure map!
In Forest School the children have been shown how to use a hammer safely in the tool zone and then to use it to create artwork.
The current interest is to make cakes using playdough and spaghetti as candles. We are hoping to make our own real cake in the next few weeks.
The children have started visiting school and are also getting used to changing clothes for PE. They have been busy practicing for the Show; this time the children have planned the whole event themselves!At Forest School the children made clay creations using natural materials which they proudly took home.
We have also been keenly watching our plants grow!
