FED-UP youngsters want an end to the repeated vandalism on their beloved pre-school.
The thought of how the attacks might affect the children at Meadows Pre-School has so far failed to deter the perpetrators from smashing windows, tearing down apparatus and stealing toys and equipment.
Owner Liz Swatton, who lives in Countess Close, said: "It started last October when a climbing frame was stolen from the garden.
"Since then there has been constant vandalism. We put up windmills and they broke those, we installed wind chimes and they were taken, and when we put up a playhouse they threw bricks at it, and it was smashed to smithereens.
"A paddling pool filled with sand, and a gazebo covering it, were both vandalised, a trampo-line vanished, and even a child's bench made out of cast iron and wood was taken.
"Graffiti has been daubed on the doors. I dread coming in on Mondays as it usually happens over the weekend. "
The pre-school group meets in the Scout hut in Taylors Meadow, in Hill End Road, which itself was replaced after a fire several years ago.
It has five staff who work with 20 children, five mornings a week.
Mrs Swatton said: "I've been so stressed I have thought I can't do this any more. We're told by Ofsted we must provide appropriate outside space which is safe, child friendly and provides extra experiences, and maybe security cameras would help this?"
Sergeant Alan Moore of Harefield police station, said: "We are aware there have been problems there over a period of time, mainly because the building where the pre-school is is so isolated.
"To vandalise a group like this is a mean thing to do, particular-ly as the ones who miss out are always the kids."
