Your child will develop self-esteem, independence and language.

Deverell Hall Preschool in Purbrook seek to provide first class childcare facilities and preschool learning for parents looking for a placement in the Purbrook and Waterlooville areas. We provide a safe and stimulating environment in which children can mix and learn.

Our local preschool offers a secure environment where your child can broaden their horizons through a variety of fun, and challenging activities. We provide continuous play both indoors and outside with a varied selection of resources, equipment and age-appropriate developmental toys.

We understand the need to work in partnership with parents and carers to help children learn and develop, and be prepared for mainstream school life.

About Our School

We are not a private establishment and therefore not driven by profit. We operate as a registered charity, governed by a Parent Management Committee.

Our Manager is both experienced and professional and together with our staff team we have run a very successful child care setting for over 50 years.

Our school parent committee

Parent Management Committee

Deverell Hall Pre School is managed by a Parent Management Committee which consists of parents attached to the Pre School. They work in partnership with our Manager who is professionally qualified and together they meet three times a year and discuss policies; pre school matters; staff movements etc.

Without a Committee the Pre School would be at risk of closing so our Manager seeks out those parents who are able to give up their time to help when needed. Our committee requires a Chairperson / Secretary / Treasurer and ordinary members.
