About Thornborough Pre-School

Committed to Education and Learning Through Play

Thornborough is a village and also a civil parish within Aylesbury Vale district in Buckinghamshire, England. It is located about two miles east of Buckingham. 

We are a small setting located in the heart of Thornborough village and operate from the cricket pavilion within the grounds of Sir Henry Moore playing field.  We accept children from 18 months - 4 years of age and offer a safe, happy and stimulating environment for all. 

The importance of play

When we talk about play, people naturally think about young children, however all children and young people should have the opportunity to play every day.

Play is important for the early stages of brain development and playing with your child can help build relationships for later life. But no matter what age we are, play helps to develop important skills for learning, life and work. By using an indoor and outdoor environment we provide a nurturing environment where children learn through play. 


Thornborough Infant School


July 2021

Welcome to the start of the summer holidays! Even in strange times....Over the academic year, our pre-school and the infant school join forces for activity days. This makes the transition to ‘big’ school easier as the children are already well accustomed to the site and their wonderful staff.

Covid 19 and keeping our children safe

Covid-19 Screening

July 2021

We have come a long way and the vaccine rollout is doing an amazing job. But sadly COVID-19 is very much still around and with a new Delta variant. We want to ensure we are strictly following the forever changing guidelines at all times, with extra cleaning and personal care. Keeping the staff and children safe is our top priority. Please contact us for more info the procedures we have in place at our Pre-School.

Pre-school has been getting a makeover!


July 2021

A big thank you to Sophie our Treasurer and from September our future Chair for starting the make over on our Pre-School. This has included treating and painting our fences and porch, painting a mural on the inside of our porch and lots more planned throughout the summer holidays with the help of our committee.

Thornborough Pre-School is an exceptionally special place where two of my children have been welcomed by Heidi and her wonderful, caring, friendly and professional team.
They all go above and beyond delivering expert care, is so aware of each child’s individual personality and cares deeply about their wellbeing and the Pre-School is super organised!!
I never worry about my child while at Thornborough Pre-School and I know whatever my child needs , physically or emotionally they will all be met and superseded.
I could not recommend this setting more, it is just wonderful.

My daughter was with Thornborough pre school for around 18 months once we moved to the village. She settled in very quickly and had a great relationship  with the team ( her peers ) and has made some very solid friendships with the other children. My daughter really enjoyed pre school and was always asking about when her next day was. In my opinion this small but intimate setting is a great start for any child and the children really are focused on, I felt with the other settings my daughter attended there was too many children and they was left alot to their own devices. Thornborough Pre School is a happy place to be and the children are constantly learning new skills without even realising  they are being taught as Heidi and her team are constantly making tasks fun and exciting . In my opinion there is no other place I would rather send my child and I look forward for my son joining them in 2021.

Thornborough Pre-school was a lovely start to Sophie’s journey, she has made some lovely friends here and loved every moment with her little pre-school family. She has made so many lovely memories that will stay with her forever and had so much fun with all her friends along the way. The staff are all very lovely and welcoming. They make the children feel at home, a little safe space to learn and grow. From one very happy mummy.
