What age is a preschooler? Ages up to 4 is considered preschooler with toddlers are 1 - 3 year old bracket. Basically 4-year-old are not 'toddling' around any more and so are no longer toddlers!

What does preschool mean? A preschool, or nursery school, is a pre-primary school, or play school for early childhood education. Preschool is for children before they begin compulsory education at primary school. 

Is Pre K considered preschool? Pre K schools are pre-kindergartens.

The school has exceeded my expectations by far

We're just coming to the end of our daughter's first year at EPS and its been really fantastic. As well as a high standard of educational provision and a dedicated staff team, the school goes above and beyond others locally in terms of providing wrap-around care before & after school and during holidays. Our son is starting at the nursery full-time in September, we can't wait. Visit the school, meet the teachers and pupils, you'll be impressed. Especially great for working parents.

Treetops Nursery - Sutton

I've wanted to write something about this nursery now for a while, but only ever got to do so direct with the nursery. This is the most wonderful place to put your child; our daughter is absolutely thriving here and so happy, which obviously makes us happy. The staff are wonderful, and the place has such a warm homely feel to it that it literally feels like a second home to our daughter and even to ourselves. We highly recommend this place and cannot find the words to do it the justice it deserves!!

Exceptional nursery, the staff really look after the children very well. My daughter is thriving and becoming a confident baby.

Best Epsom Secondary Schools -

Epsom & Ewell High School

Ruxley Ln, West Ewell, Ewell, Epsom KT19 9JW, UK – 020 8974 0400

I have never been or heard of Epsom and Ewell High school before so I don't know what it is like . But it probably like other High schools.🍑

Probably the best in the borough

Nonsuch High School for Girls

Ewell Road, Sutton, Cheam SM3 8AB, UK – 020 8394 3400

A outstanding school, with plenty young, bright minds who are ready to learn. The school constantly challenges the students and helps them to excel in their learning. Their are thousand of activities to participate in and they offer facilities that anyone can use and enjoy. All in all, an amazing school.

I go to Nonsuch, and I can honestly say it is an amazing school. I have read some of these reviews, and can reassure you that what Nonsuch is potrayed as here is NOT true. First of all, about Nonsuch being sexist in dress code in mufti and uniform is a lie, we have trousers and are allowed to show heels. We are also encouraged to wear good durable shoes so yes, they are strict about that but I don't see the problem, they are trying to do what's best for you. On the make-up point, Nonsuch just wants you to focus on being happy and healthy, and with make-up you spend excess time on how you look, even if it's just for you. There is another one about Nonsuch 'forcing' you to join sports clubs which is just ridiculous. If Nonsuch is encouraging heath for well being I don't see what is wrong. Yes, sometimes you don't have a model teacher, no school is perfect, and even the worst teacher can teach the subject fairly well. Another one, about Nonsuch giving you stress and depression, I can tell you Nonsuch has excellent mental health care, with reliable, trustable teachers who will help you or an easily found councellor who comes in once a week. If it comes down to stress, don't blame it on Nonsuch, they do everything they can to lessen stress, end of the day it's up to you on how you feel! And if Nonsuch isn't worth the 'hassle' or 'going through the 11+', go to another school if you don't like Nonsuch, they try their best, and it honestly isn't their fault for numerous budget cuts! Don't let these people who haven't even properly BEEN to Nonsuch how Nonsuch is, honestly they try their very best and I love going there!

Have only the very best things to say about this school. The whole school staff want the very best for every child, and care about their whole development, not just Maths and English. Their results are consistently above local and national levels and their successes in sports are very impressive considering their small size compared to the other schools competing. There is Nonsuch place as this...
