To all our wonderful parents,

We have tried our very best to remain open as long as possible to support children of frontline workers, however we have now reached a point where we need to close for the time being.

I would like to thank all of our families for their emails and our Pre-school Committee for their on-going support during this unprecedented time.

We have loved working with your children and will miss them while Brampton & Hilltop Pre-Schools remain closed. 

I hope that you all remain safe and well and hope we are able to re-open as soon as we can.

Although the settings are now closed you can still contact me or Chris via email:



Best wishes, Sarah Bailey, Manager, Brampton & Hilltop Pre-schools
