Clarendon Cottage

Preparatory School

Juniors

 
As part of Clarendon Cottage Preparatory School, it is not surprising that our nursery are passionate about education and with the Early Years at the school rated “Excellent” there is a strong educational thread that feeds right the way down through the nursery groups. Within the nursery we provide enabling environments, stimulating activities and a dedicated childcare team to help you give your child the best possible start across all aspects of learning. Children are encouraged to thrive and be themselves by following their own interests; whether that is being loud and energetic whilst playing in our outdoor provision or quiet and concentrated whilst sitting in a cosy area of the classroom reading a story. There is always the opportunity to explore, investigate and discover something new!

WHERE WE CAME FROM
Clarendon   Cottage   Preparatory   School   began   as   The   Cottage   Nursery,   when   my   husband,   Jeff,   and   I   were   looking around   the   local   area   for   childcare   options   for   our   own   children.   However,   what   we   found   was   that   no   existing   nursery offered   the   kind   of   care   we   envisioned   for   our   children.   We   wanted   a   nursery   that   would   provide   wrap   around   care   and lots   of   fun   whilst   also   putting   an   emphasis   on   early   reading,   writing   and   maths.   This   simply   didn’t   seem   to   exist.   So   the idea   of   doing   it   ourselves,   providing   our   own   children   and   others   with   the   care   we   wanted,   was   ignited.   Jeff   and   my sister,   Sarah   (already   working   in   child   care),   left   their   jobs   and   we   sold   the   family   home,   moving   in   above   the   nursery whilst   we   were   doing   work   on   the   building   and   getting   it   ready.   Then   finally   in   1989   we   opened   The   Cottage   Nursery, and we haven’t looked back since. Our   ethos   of   early   education,   excellent   care   and   lots   of   fun   proved   to   be   so   successful   that   our   parents   didn’t   want   to   go else   where   when   their   children   reached   school   age;   they   kept   asking   us   why   we   couldn’t   open   a   primary   school   so   they didn’t   have   to   leave,   and   so   Clarendon   Cottage   Preparatory   School   was   born.   It   opened   in   September   1991   in   an   upstairs room   of   the   nursery;   with   one   mixed   infant   class   and   one   teacher.   As   our   first   year   group   grew   older   and   we   welcomed more   children   into   the   school   we   realised   one   room   wasn’t   going   to   be   enough.   After   moving   a   couple   of   times   we bought Ivy Bank House from the local authority in 1994 and the school had its home. We   have   since   grown   even   further,   acquiring   our   sister   nursery   Monton   Village   School   in   1999.   Our   original   ethos   of traditional,   quality   education   in   a   family   environment   is   still   at   the   heart   of   what   we   do.   The   founding   three   are   still involved   in   the   School;   Sarah   and   Jeff   as   Company   Directors   among   other   roles   and   myself   in   primarily   a   consultancy role.   Family   is   at   the   heart   of   all   we   do   and   the   businesses   future   is   no   different;   in   2009   our   eldest   daughter,   Emily, joined   the   school   as   a   teacher,   after   completing   degrees   in   both   in   Ancient   History   and   Archaeology   and   a   PGCE.   After several   years   teaching   Emily   moved   into   development   of   our   nurseries   and   school   before   then   joining   the   Board   of Directors.    More    recently,    our    youngest    daughter,    Lizzie,    has    joined    the    company,    after    completing    her    degree    in Business   Management   (HR   Specialism).   As   previous   students   of   the   Prep   School,   both   Emily   and   Lizzie   are   passionate about   ensuring   that   other   children   can   receive   the   same   high   quality,   all   round,   caring   education   they   themselves   once received.
