    Pls help me to find this word!

    Dear teachers,

    I want to find the word that describe a period before a certain point of time.
    For example, I start working at 8am, but I arrive 30mins, 15mins earlier.
    So what's the common word for these earlier time (30mins, 15mins,)?

    Thank you!
