From the term after your child turns three years old they will be eligible to join The Nest. The Nest is part of the Pre-Prep and is located within the Pre-Prep building, benefitting from all of its wonderful space and specialist facilities and enabling us to provide a seamless transition into Reception when the time comes. The Nest classroom has benefitted from a top to toe refurbishment, including adding ‘en-suite’ washroom facilities and its own free flow access to a secure, all weather play area. It is large, bright and spacious and equipped with all of the resources to meet the needs of your child. The Nest provides children with an exciting and broad curriculum, taught by a qualified teacher, supported by experienced Teaching Assistants and enhanced by specialist staff. Our aim is to know and nurture each and every child, ensuring that they have the highest standards of care and education, enabling them to make the best possible progress from whatever stage of development they are at.
