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.

Our “Family Display is up. Thank you to those families who have bought a photograph. If you have not brought one in yet we would ask if you can so it can be displayed.
We made “Flubber” which the children explored and this interest has continued. They have used scissors with flubber to develop their cutting skills, the texture allows for small snips which provides the children with an achievement in cutting.
We have introduced the children to “Bonjour” and “Hola” at circle time and are encouraging the children to have a go at greeting each other.
The children have been using the woodwork station using real tools. We have had a visit from the police and we went outside to see their truck. It was very loud when the siren was on. We’ve also had a visit from two therapy dogs, Harry and Lily and we had a go at brushing them. We’ve also had a parent in to give us a taste of Spanish, including dancing! Another parent visited to talk about clay pigeon shooting.
