Welcome to the wonderful world of Windmill Pre-School!
We have been based in our fantastic purpose-built Pre-School building on the Brookmead School site in Ivinghoe since 2011. Prior to that we were a "pack away" Pre-School which was set up in 1960!
Our focus is to ensure that each child has a memorable, fun learning journey through general play, arts, crafts, organised activities all whilst making friends.
Our daily activities encourage children’s creativity, curiosity and co-ordination within the Early Years curriculum.
Sessions run Monday to Friday, 9am-12pm and 12-3pm with the option of adding lunch club (12-1pm) to a morning session if spaces allow.
Please feel free to contact us if you need any information.

We are so proud to receive such wonderful feedback
We'd like to share some recent comments with you-:
"T has had such a wonderful couple of years at Windmill. He has grown and learnt so much and we are so happy with the progress he has made, especially with things like speaking and playing. The team at Windmill have all been amazing, everyone is so so lovely and amazing with the children- it feels like such a lovely environment for them and we will miss it very much! We can't thank you all enough for making his time so enjoyable and for putting our minds at ease and all the support you've given him and us."
"We've been so happy with R's care at Windmill. It's been so lovely to watch her thrive, grow in confidence and become a little kind and caring young lady. Thank you so much to all the wonderful staff at Windmill for all that you do. I can't recommend this Pre-School enough!"
"Just wanted to notify you that A will sadly be leaving Windmill preschool at the end of Feb/March time. We are relocating to Devon. We are very excited for our new adventure but also very sad to be leaving such a wonderful preschool. I really can't tell you what a difference you have made in A's journey into Preschool. I'm so happy for you all with the news of using the children's Centre. You all do such a fab job." J (Parent)
"Thank you for the opportunities you have given me at Windmill, I’ll always be eternally grateful. I wish you all the success in the world. You and all of the team do a great job and the children are lucky to have such a great environment to come to." O (Staff member)
During the Covid-19 pandemic (and more recent "lockdown") we have a number of children not currently attending Pre-School.
It is highly important to us to keep the link going between us and the children. We have been hosting some online classes!
We will continue to do so for as long as we need to.
Here's some of our recent feedback....
"Thanks for that- as soon as it finished A asked to do it again!" H (parent)
"The second the call ended and H got off his chair he said 'it was lovely seeing my friends' :) I think T enjoyed it too!" M (Parent)
"It was great to have a story and songs today. It's really great for L to see his preschool friends, thank you for doing it! A baby/toddler one would be so great. I used to take L to lots of these when he was A's age. It’s such a shame A hasn't been to any at all. It would be great!" V (Parent)
"Huge thank you Emma & Danielle for the Zoom Class today.
Thank you again for all your hard work - you & the team do so much for the children (& parents) & we really appreciate it." J (Parent)
"Thanks for today Emma and Danielle. N loved it!" V (Parent)
"The baby/ toddler session sounds great if you have the time! If C falls asleep, A will probably still enjoy it!" H (Parent)
