Our Preschool is perfect for children between the ages of two and four who are taking their first steps away from home.

Located in a purpose-built setting with lots of outdoor space and excellent facilities, our Preschool provides a nurturing environment with all the benefits of our outstanding pre-prep.

We like to think of our Preschool as the start of the Rowan journey for girls and we hope that you will want your daughter to progress through to our Reception class to experience the exceptional educational experience that Rowan has to offer.

The teaching ethos in our Preschool and Reception classes is creative, exciting, varied and hands-on. The girls are encouraged to discover, question and relish their learning in order to gain a solid foundation in every area of learning and become independent pupils. 

Our imaginative and colourful classrooms offer a wide range of exciting learning areas including a dedicated story and role-play corner, literacy and numeracy zones, an IT section and areas for investigative and imaginative challenges.

Preschool teachers observe, nurture, extend and develop the girls in an exciting, imaginative and caring environment.  This enables teachers to prepare a detailed profile of each child which forms the basis of their future learning. In addition to the Preschool teachers, we have specialised teachers who teach music, dance, drama, French, gym, yoga and games to the girls. 

In our stimulating outdoor learning environment, the girls enjoy exploring the sandpit, the grassy garden, adventure climbing apparatus and water and role-play areas. There is a hard surface for riding bikes, a playhouse and covered space for painting and water-based activities.

In addition, we have access to our Forest School site located within the woodland area at Telegraph Hill and the girls enjoy embracing outdoor learning during their weekly Forest School sessions in this wonderful environment.

Girls can join our Preschool at any point during the school year, provided they have turned two years old before the September of the year joining. Girls may attend full-time, or parents can choose the sessions they require with a minimum attendance of two morning sessions per week for 2 to 3 year olds. We offer the universal 15 hours Early Years Funded Entitlement (EYFE) for eligible pupils in our Preschool and Reception years. Please click here for more information.

Our Preschool is very popular, so early registration is recommended. Please contact us to arrange a visit and to enquire about places available.
