TCC Pre-School started in 1992 and was originally based in a temporary building for 2 years on the "A Place To Play" site, before operating in the existing building between 1994 and December 2020. It became a registered charity in 1999 and following this we changed our name to The Colourful Caterpillar Preschool, although are known as the TCC Preschool throughout Thatcham.
The Pre-School is now based in the 2nd Thatcham Scouts Building, near the Memorial Hall, Brownsfield, Bath Road. The preschool continues to provide lots of activities with a large hall and kitchen and with its own access. It also has access to an outside teaching area and garden, both of which are completely fenced in.
