Due to Covid-19 Abington Vale Pavilion Preschool is currently closed therefore no-one is on site to answer any phone calls.  Unfortunately we are unable to show any prospective parents and children around our lovely site at this time.  We still have vacancies for September 2020 intake.  If you are still interested in enquiring some information then please email providing your name and contact telephone number.  We will endeavour to call you back to discuss your requirements, should you be happy to start your child with us, then we can post out a Registration Pack.  We look forward to hearing from you.  If you know of anyone else with children of eligible age please pass our information onto them.

Stay Safe


The Pavilion is a community based preschool.  Established in 1979, we offer care and education to children below school age and over the age of two.

We aim to provide children with a positive and motivating experience.  Our staff recognise the importance of instilling confidence and enthusiasm from an early age. We will work with your child to ensure that he or she develops as an individual, whilst helping to nurture and inspire through play and creativity.

The management responsibilities of The Pavilion were handed over to Northampton Primary Academy Trust (NPAT) and Abington Vale Primary School (AVPS), by our Trustees & Committee on 1st March 2018.  The day to day running of the preschool will be unaffected except only enhanced by Abington Vale Primary’s involvement.

The sessions are run by experienced, qualified staff and at the moment managed by an elected committee of volunteers.

We understand that choosing the right place for your child is a difficult decision for any parent to make. So before registering with us, we invite you and your child to come and have a look around.
