Chawton Pre-School

Welcome to Chawton Pre-School


We are set in the heart of Jane Austen's idyllic village, Chawton, at its picturesque oak-beamed village hall. From this location we have easy access to all of the village's facilities including cricket pitch, sports field, play-ground and Chawton House itself, as well as the numerous wooded areas and foot paths that surround this historic and beautiful village. The hall also makes for an exceptional pre-school classroom and our motivated, experienced staff make for a very happy and friendly environment for our children.
