Pre-School

The Pre-School educates girls aged 3 and 4 years old, and where appropriate, younger girls are considered.

Our small and friendly Pre-School places importance on maintaining a close relationship between the child, teacher and the family. As well as working closely with our four well-qualified early childhood teachers, QMC Pre-School students have the advantage of using the wider school facilities and accessing specialist staff.

The programme is shaped by the belief that young children are capable learners, well positioned to acquire early literacy and numeracy skills and concepts in a stimulating environment. Here you can expect the very best start to education for your child in a well-structured and nurturing setting.

Importantly, the transition to the Junior School from Pre-School is smooth as the familiarity of the Junior School located nearby creates a sense of confidence.
