Welcome to the Windmill Preschool in Thaxted.
We are a popular and friendly charity-run preschool caring for children from the age of approximately 2½ until they move on to primary school.
Our session times are currently 9am - 12 noon Monday to Thursday, with lunch time sessions until 2.00pm on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday - these lunch time sessions are for children over 3 years old. Friday is 9am to 2pm and is only offered to children preparing for the next primary school intake - "rising 5's".
We pride ourselves on our high staff-child ratios. We typically have 16 children and four members of staff each morning.
Our aim is to provide the children in our care with a safe, secure, warm and happy environment in which they can enjoy a wide variety of play experiences.
We are committed to making preschool fun, where “play” is the key word in helping the children to develop their skills and knowledge at their own pace without feeling under any pressure.
