We are delighted that you are considering Blackheath Preparatory School for your child’s education and it is in the Nursery where their 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 our goal at Blackheath Prep is to establish sound foundations on which your child can thrive as they continue their journey through 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 throughout a curriculum which values the importance of play and making sense of the world through both child initiated and adult directed learning opportunities and experiences.
