We have said good bye to our chicks for another year, BUT we now have some frog spawn and tadpoles to watch develop! How exciting!  /  

Our Pre-School is a registered charity run by a Committee of volunteers made up of parents of children either currently attending pre-school or who did so previously. We depend a lot on the volunteers and without the Committee pre-school would not be able to operate.

We would encourage all parents (and non parents) to consider becoming one of the Trustees. This is a key opportunity to make a difference and have an impact on the running of the Pre-School. Becoming involved is rewarding, sociable, fun and very interesting. For more details please talk to the Pre-School Manager or click this red button to get in touch. Thank you for your interest!

Hi, I am Julia. I moved to Pitstone with my family 7 years ago. Having had experience with other childcare settings I was fascinated by how amazing and well organised Windmill pre-school is, and also that it's run by a group of volunteers. When my youngest started attending Windmill I responded to a call for volunteers and joined committee as a trustee, keen to support.
My professional background is in Cinema Technology. Those projectors in the cinema showing movies on a big screen, that's what I do. I specialise in Operations Management and have worked in different countries over the years.
I think what Emma and her wonderful team are doing is fantastic. We all have a chance to be part of it, contributing whatever time and skills we can to help develop and grow our beautiful pre-school. This committee experience is absolutely rewarding, and I feel like I am giving back to the community.
We are always on the lookout for new committee members and/or volunteers to help with pre-school events. If you have questions, please contact me at julia(at)windmillpreschool.co.uk.

Hi I’m Hannah, I moved to Ivinghoe with my husband in 2020 (just before lockdown!). We have since had 2 children and I can’t quite believe how lucky we are to have such a fantastic pre-school on our doorstep. After giving up my NHS job just before having our second son, I’m looking forward to being part of a lovely team again and hopefully help make a difference. I couldn’t think of a better team to join to support our pre-school. Aside from being a mum of 2 brilliant boys, I am a coffee lover, love a pamper and enjoy baking, going for family walks and going to the theatre!
