What age is a preschooler? Ages up to 4 is considered preschooler with toddlers are 1 - 3 year old bracket. Basically 4-year-old are not 'toddling' around any more and so are no longer toddlers!

What does preschool mean? A preschool, or nursery school, is a pre-primary school, or play school for early childhood education. Preschool is for children before they begin compulsory education at primary school. 

Is Pre K considered preschool? Pre K schools are pre-kindergartens.

Fantastic independent school where the staff and teachers get to know each child and educate them to be confident, contributing people equipped to go on to senior school. Small classes with individual teaching. When you add up the package of clubs, activities, after school care through to 1730 etc it ends up as pretty good value. Lovely connection across pre-school and prep-school.

Great little school.
