Discover how to prepare your child for school admission in the early years with this guide by our expert education consultants.
Early Years Consultancy and Nursery Placement
Our early years education consultants provide trusted, independent advice to help you prepare your child for their first steps into formal education. We have a comprehensive knowledge of the best nurseries and pre-preparatory schools throughout London, and the admissions processes for each.
We take care to understand your family’s aspirations and what is important to you in your child’s early education: would you like a more structured learning environment where children sit at desks and have a uniform, or do you prefer a more relaxed atmosphere? Our consultants will make sure you have all the information you need to feel confident that your child is getting the best possible start to their academic career.
If you are searching for pre-prep or nursery advice, please contact one of our early years education consultants or use our online enquiry form further down this page.
Our Approach to Pre-Preparatory and Nursery Placement
When helping families choose pre-preps or nurseries, the first thing we do is focus on what style of early education you want for your child. Would you like a more structured learning environment, or do you prefer a more relaxed atmosphere?
Our early years consultants have deep local knowledge across the south east and are particularly well connected in London. They can help you with the pros and cons of each nursery or pre-prep in your area. On the practical side, your nursery consultant can also help with the registration process, paperwork and visits to schools.
We were delighted to win the Relocate Global award for, ‘Excellence in Education Consultancy 2019′. In the words of the judges:
“This firm clearly brings a caring and compassionate perspective to its services, but combines this with technological efficiency and excellent people management practices – a very buttoned-down intelligent group of people with a bigger-picture awareness.”
We were very pleased with the services provided by Simply Learning Tuition and Katie Haigh. As non-locals, the general set up of schools in the U.K. were completely foreign to us. We aimed to learn the basic foundation and the various paths we could choose, ultimately with a short-list of nurseries for us to consider. All of those goals were met with clear communication and efficiency. If we need further guidance, we will not hesitate to contact Simply Learning Tuition again.
Mrs G, Primrose Hill, Nursery Placement
"As soon as Eleanor and Fred entered the house they were focused on Alex, what he was doing and what he liked to do with them. Eleanor let him play with a little Alphabet puzzle she had and Alex immediately started to learn a few new letters. They went off to the study and were laughing and reading. Fred took out some paints and paper and let Alex paint a picture, asking continuously what he was doing and showing him how to mix colours. He talked about the colours and then what colour flowers/grass/trees were. Alex was very comfortable with both as was I and I would not hesitate to leave him with them for the duration of the studies".
