The Banstead Prep Nursery and pre-school offers our youngest children the opportunity to develop through play, helping them to feel confident and safe in the school environment, while ensuring they’re given the best start to their time at our school.

To really encourage the most from children all the way through the school it’s vital that we get it right, right from the very start. Every child learns, progresses and succeeds in their own way at their own pace.

By investing in our youngest children from the minute they join us, encouraging their interests, promoting kindness and compassion, and teaching them how to learn, we forge strong relationships and instil good habits, a ‘can do’ attitude and a love of learning they can take with them as they continue through the school.

Success encompasses everything we do; the foundations we create and then build upon in nursery and pre-school are crucial to our children’s later development, in all areas – personally, socially, physically and academically. With familiar staff and surroundings, and relationships already built, the children are ready for the journey ahead and make a smooth, seamless transition to Reception.

We also know the time pressures many parents face and, with this in mind, we provide extremely flexible wraparound and sibling care, to ensure a personalised service for each of our families.
