Welcome to Little Rascals Pre-Prep

Little Rascals Pre-Prep is situated in the heart of Royal Tunbridge Wells, on Clanricarde Gardens. The Pre-Prep is housed in a stunning Edwardian converted house and is conveniently located for both local residents and commuters, being only a short walk from Tunbridge Wells train station.

We are open full-time from 7:30am – 6:30pm caring for children from 3 years to 5 years.

The Pre-Prep is split over two floors with the younger children on the lower floor. When developmentally ready, children transition to the upper floor. Here, activities are play based, and centred around school readiness and preparing the children for the next big milestone in their development and learning.

The Pre-Prep has an outside play area where children explore and discover the natural world around them. This provides countless opportunities for the children to investigate the awe and wonder of outdoor learning.

The daily curriculum and standards comply with our registration on the Ofsted Early Years Register, which monitors the overall quality standards of the early years provision, in line with the principles and requirements of the ‘Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage’.

LEARNING

Our main aim is to provide a secure and happy environment where children can learn through play.

SETTLING IN

Your first settling in sessions will give you and your child an opportunity to get to know your child’s Key Person.

OUTDOORS

We regularly offer opportunities for learning outdoors – giving children the freedom to explore and be physically active.

FOOD

Our menus are designed by the nursery chef and a paediatric dietician to meet the needs of each age group.

“Just a little note to say a HUGE thank you for everything you’ve done over the past couple of years for us! I can’t praise Little Rascals enough.”

“To all the wonderful staff. Thank you for giving all the children such a great start. We will miss you all!”

“Thank you so much for the love and care you’ve shown… your constant smiles are a joy to see and make Little Rascals the great place it is.”

“‘To Charlotte & Jordan, thank you for everything you have done for Henry, we will miss you terribly. He has been so happy at Little Rascals and it is all down to the wonderful staff that make the children so happy and well looked after. He is leaving Little Rascals a very confident little boy ready for his next chapter, so thank you for everything!”

“Often he doesn’t want to leave and will carry on playing for ages until I drag him out!!”

“I’m actually dreading the day it’s time for her to move on. Wonderful team behind it and high recommend it.”

“Dear Charlotte, Jordan, Rachel and all at Little Rascals, it’s the end of a very special era for us. A huge thank you to all of you for all the love and care you’ve given both of our little people over the years, but of course most recently, our mischievous Daniel! We’ll miss you all, but know that Daniel is the best prepared for school because of all your hard work.”
