About Us

Cove Pavilion Pre-school is a Community Pre-school housed in a Pavilion building on Cove Green in Farnborough, and has been established since 1966.

The pre-school is open during the hours of 8.00 a.m. and 3.45 p.m. Monday to Friday, during term times. Your child may attend in a combination of ways during these times.
