Pre-Prep Head’s welcome
Welcome to St Michael’s Pre-Prep
I love St Michael’s. From the moment I drove down the driveway for the first time I knew this was the place I wanted to be. You won’t fail to be impressed either.
The Pre-Prep at St Michael’s is a vibrant, exciting place to be. The children skip down the bridge in the morning to join their friends in our beautiful, purpose built building. Showing prospective parents around is a joy. Our children are always happy, polite and friendly. They love to tell visitors why they think St Michael’s is the best school!
The staff team at Pre-Prep is a strong and supportive one. They work closely with our parents to ensure our children are safely nurtured both at home and at school.
All of our children, from the moment they join us in our Nursery, have access to dedicated staff for Music and PE. This ensures their creative and sporting talents are developed from a very young age.
Children can join the St Michaels’s family from the age of 2. We have a Nursery, looked after by a team of experienced staff, where learning through play is what it’s all about. Children graduate to our Kindergarten when they are 3 years old; here they can explore two classrooms full of ever-changing themes. Several of our children begin to stay all day and have lunch with their playmates. Formal schooling starts with our Reception classes. Reception children learn to become more independent, their reading and writing takes off and they start to understand adding and subtraction. In Year 1 our children begin to widen their horizons. They start to take responsibility and develop their understanding and imagination. Our Year 2 children are confident and outgoing. They excitedly take a rite of passage with our outward bound trip to Stubbers. They are prepared for the transition to Prep school and the next stage of their St Michael’s journey. I am tremendously proud of them all.
