A child’s experiences between birth and starting formal education can have a major impact on their future life chances. It is natural that parents, with their children’s best interests at heart, start planning early. At Holland Park we offer antenatal advice to ensure that expectant parents can plant firm and stable roots for their new and growing family.
We recognise that there are enough things to think about during pregnancy as it is; London’s increasingly competitive nursery scene may be a long way from your mind. The sooner you plan, though, the more likely you are to secure a place at a nursery that will give your child a fantastic start in life. After all, it is no secret that top nurseries provide a well-trodden path into the most competitive pre-preps and primary schools.
Our specialist Nursery and Early Years consultants will look after you and your young family throughout the process of nursery selection and placement. Their experience of working at nurseries in London and abroad will allow them to share with you the components of an outstanding nursery.
They will demystify the top nurseries, ensuring that you are confident in the curriculum, ethos and teaching style of each one. Whether you would like to know which the most prestigious nurseries in your area are, or which area you should move to, they will guide you in identifying a shortlist and then narrowing it down to one.
It may be useful, in deciding on the right path for your young son or daughter, to get an idea of their academic potential in order to inform decisions that you make about primary or pre-prep schools. Our expert consultants can deliver a gentle assessment – many children do not realise that they are being tested at all – and give you an honest idea of how they compare to their peers at this early stage.
