About Bennerley House Pre-Prep
Welcome to Bennerley House Pre-Prep
The children arrive in the coeducational 3yrs plus Pre-Prep excited and ready to learn after a fantastic start to their educational journey in the Northcote House Nursery. We encourage children to develop and build upon their abilities in all areas of learning and take pride in their achievements.
Within the structured Pre-Prep day children quickly gain independence, self-confidence and an enthusiasm for learning. Emphasis is placed on trying one’s best, being kind and tolerant of others and their points of view. Our innovative and exciting curriculum encourages the children to develop all the characteristics needed for effective learning. We work in partnership with parents to prepare children for entry into well regarded schools in the local and surrounding areas.
Bennerley House Pre-Prep is located on Bennerley Road it has a separate entrance aiming to create confident children with a firm sense of belonging and well- being, whilst enabling them to make a smooth transition to their chosen school later in life. For children transitioning from the Northcote House Nursery, there is access internally between the two buildings.
The learning environment at Bennerley House Pre-Prep is equipped with state of the art educational resources making it suitable for a variety of activities either child led or teacher led. Each day, the team nurture the children’s natural curiosity, creativity and critical thinking though fun, play-based tasks. This helps them become independent and to think for themselves. Initiative is praised and the resulting self-confidence helps children develop a positivise attitude towards learning.
Then they succeed….
