We are delighted that you are considering Blackheath Preparatory School for your child’s education and it is in the Nursery where the adventure begins.  From the moment a child joins us they are encouraged to view themselves as part of the school community.

We know that choosing a school for your child is a very important decision and at Blackheath Prep our goal is to establish sound foundations on which your child can thrive, continuing their journey throughout the School. 

Working in partnership and open communication with parents is vital in ensuring the success of each child.  Within the Early Years Foundation Stage we strive to offer a nurturing and productive learning environment where positive dispositions to learning are fostered.  Our key worker system in the Nursery enables children to feel valued as individuals, safe and cared for.  We aim for excellence and our approach to the curriculum brings learning to life, through both adult directed and child initiated activities.
