Pavilion PreSchool (Aigburth) CIO

We are an Ofsted GOOD, not-for-profit pre-school, a registered CIO.  We operate from a small building in the quiet, family focused Sudley area of Aigburth. After many years hard work  fundraising, with support from Power to Change, our community and other charitable trusts we sucessfully rebuilt a purpose built preschool and gardens in November 2020. We have a spacious indoor and outdoor play area, garden and allotment which our children enjoy being able to access daily. We have an allotment garden on site where the children can grown, learn and play. We have a wonderfully experienced staff team. 

We are a non for profit charitable pre school with a parent commitee. We invest our time, passion and care in to the eduction of our preschool children. We have a strong community spirit and have been established for almost 50 years.

We have highly qualified staff whose aim it is to educate, inspire and learn alongside  preschool children, as well as prepare them for transition into school. We offer a wide scope of learning through play and aim to encourage all children's natural curiosity for learning. We welcome all children at Pavilion, cherish diversity and embrace all learning
