Welcome to Pre-Prep

 

Birkenhead School Pre-Prep is for children aged three and four and is the second phase in the Early Years Provision at the School.  It is an exciting and fun environment with bright,spacious and modern classrooms and its own outside play area and terrace.  

Pre-Prep area is busy and active with lots going on to engage, entertain and develop children.  Children take part in a wide range of activities including Yoga, Dance, Mystery Readers, participation in the Prep’s annual Sports Day, as well as Christmas and Summer performances.  Children make friendships with their peers and across different year groupsand a highlight of each week is when Year 6 ‘Reading Buddies’ read with our younger children in the Pre-Prep.

I warmly invite you to visit our Pre-Prep and see what makes us a special place for your child’s pre-school education and how it provides an excellent and secure foundation for them to make the move to School after their fourth birthday.
