Welcome to Pavilion Pirates Pre-school.

We are a pre-school located in the Woodhouse Lane area on the outskirts of both Hedge End and Botley. We have been providing outstanding quality pre-school care over the last 20 years and have a team of caring, committed and highly qualified staff. 

We are an charitable incorporated organisation run by a group of trustees.  

At Pavilion Pirates Pre-school, we recognise and value the unique qualities of every child.

We provide an exciting and stimulating environment where, through supportive relationships and play, children build a positive sense of self and firm foundations as creative, inquisitive thinkers and learners in line with the principles and commitments of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
