In the process of trying to decide on the best nursery school for your child? Considering a private nursery? This is a big decision and you want to be sure that you are making the best choices at this impressionable age for your child. So, to you help navigate this next stage of parenthood, we’ve rounded up the top benefits of choosing private care for your young son or daughter.

Solid ethos and aims

Something that is often not considered is how important the nursery that you choose to send your child to supports the same principles and values as you and your family. At Salcombe Preparatory School, we aim to inspire all pupils and promote a love of learning by offering the best possible education, meaningful engagement in learning and participation in a wide range of activities. These opportunities support their development of the attitudes and values which will prepare our young people to lead happy, stimulating, useful and fulfilled lives.

Pastoral care

Pastoral care is one of the most important aspects of school life at Salcombe Prep, we want to make sure that all children receive the care and support they require in order to thrive.  Staff at Salcombe know that happy children are children that learn. Working in partnership with parents is the key to achieving great results.

Fantastic results

Each private nursery must be inspected to ensure that the level of care being provided is at least satisfactory. At Salcombe Prep, in our latest inspection we are very proud to report that we received the below comments:

The quality and standards of the early years’ provision are outstanding. The children make rapid progress in their learning and development relative to their starting points and are extremely well prepared for the next stage of their education in Key Stage 1. The learning and care provided combines with the small group sizes and very favourable adult-child ratios to ensure that the needs of the range of children who attend are met particularly well. Children’s personal and emotional development is very sensitively promoted. They feel safe and are happy.’

Outstanding nutrition

At our preschool, your child will receive the highest quality food whilst in our care. We strongly believe in promoting healthy eating and an active lifestyle from a very young age. Your child will receive fruit, milk and a delicious and healthy hot meal, prepared and cooked on-site, at lunchtime. 

The above are just the starting points of all the amazing benefits for your child if you are looking at schools in North London. We would love you to show you more, and you can see for yourself the excellent level of care we provide each and every day for our students. Pop into one of our open days or order a prospectus, we can’t wait to meet you.
