Our Classroom and Staff
Windmill Community Nursery first opened in 1997 at Mill Lane School for the pre-school children of Chinnor and surrounding areas.
Our well resourced classroom is bright and airy with areas for creative and imaginative play, sand and water, 'finding out' areas, an interactive Smartboard and lots more! The spacious garden has a grassy area, woodland, wormery, growing area, bikes, climbing equipment, sandpit and a large undercover area.
Wide folding doors link the classroom with the Reception class giving the children many opportunities to join together for activities. The carefully planned curriculum follows the children's interests and needs and is enriched with local visits to the library, windmill and church; visitors from the community and cooking in the Nursery kitchen. The children regularly join older School children to explore the ‘Gruffland’ nature area, share stories, celebrate festivals and take part in investigation weeks.
Windmill Nursery is very much part of Mill Lane School and the local community .
