Address: Hagbourne Village Hall

Pre-school is held every week day during term time in Hagbourne Village Hall (opposite the school on Main Road) where we have the use of two interconnecting rooms – a large and small hall. We also have access to a stage in the large hall which is put to good use at our fabulous end of term productions.

In our enclosed outside play area, children can ride bikes, trikes, scooters, enjoy ball games, sand and water play, plant seeds and grow plants. We also have regular access to the adjacent Hagbourne School playing fields where we hold our very own Sports Day each summer. We take every opportunity to ensure the children enjoy and appreciate the lovely village in which their pre-school is set with regular walks around it to explore their local environment and reinforce any relevant topics that we might be covering at that time.
