Nursery & Pre-Preparatory School

King's Rochester Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School were deemed to be "excellent" in all areas after the last inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate in 2013. We pride ourselves, not only on the calibre of our teaching and the quality of our provision, but also on the level of individual care and attention we give to each child to ensure that they have a happy and positive start to school. Our youngest learners take the first steps of their learning journey in a well-resourced, bright and vibrant purpose-built school set within the School's beautiful grounds.

At King's Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School, children are at the heart of all we do. This is a crucial time in the life of a child as they take their first steps towards independence, learning and being a valued member of a wider community. 

Our School is a vibrant, exciting place to be and children come through the door in the morning beaming, greeted by myself and our very popular School dog, ‘Mitzi’, and leave with the same smile at the end of the day. King's offers a fun, varied and productive day. Our dedicated staff provide a rich and stimulating environment where curiosity and enthusiasm to learn are fostered. The solid foundations of ‘learning for life’ are laid here.

We pride ourselves on our 'family' School where our Christian foundations support our whole community and instil care, kindness and thought for one another. King’s is very much a ‘School for Life.’

I am certain that our website will give you much information about King's Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School but it cannot compare to seeing it in action! It would be my pleasure to welcome you here and show you our School, so that you can see for yourself.
