Hillside Pre-School is a charity and relies on fundraising activities and donations to ensure it can provide the best possible facilities and care for the children throughout their time at the setting.

We have undertaken some very successful fundraising activities over the years including a Fab Beatles concert to celebrate Hillside turning 40, quiz nights, a pamper evening, sponsored Easter Bonnet parades for the children and stalls at the Chorleywood Village Day and the Chorleywood Christmas Late Night shopping event.

Fundraising has meant that we can purchase new equipment such as a new reading den, an outdoor planting garden, outdoor equipment such as big walled chalk boards, outdoor watering tray and equipment, wooden toys such as garage, cars, home corner equipment, builder trays and mats.

If you would like to make a donation directly to the school, or have any fundraising ideas, please contact us on 01923 284878 or admin@hillsidepreschool.co.uk.

With the current Covid-19 pandemic we have struggled to do any of our normal fundraising activities so we have set up a GoFundMe page to try to raise valuable funds. Every donation is so valued – thank you in advance for your contribution and support.
