What's the difference between nursery and preschool? Preschools usually work around a formal curriculum and trained teachers - making them a little more expensive! Nursery schools are usually a more relaxed learning environment and more flexible enrollment terms. They are also cheaper and vary greatly.

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

What does preschool mean?

Is Pre K considered preschool?

The behaviour is quite bad but teaching is improving. Leadership in school has improved but could still be better. This school is improving but still has things to improve on.

Ok, not bad, some stuff terrible but some stuff quite good, would only recommend it to someone who loves to follow a really strict uniform code.

St Mary's Catholic Primary School

Hastings St, Loughborough LE11 5AX, UK – 01509 212621

Great School. My daughter has not long started and my son has been there since his reception years and is now age 10. To me the school has a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. I genuinely feel Miss Jordan (the Headteacher) cares about the children and maintains a child centric approach, she is very involved and always present in the playground each morning. I think she has bought lots of ideas to the school and implemented some good changes. The school environment and grounds are also to be mentioned. It is important to me as a parent that everywhere is clean and well kept and I have to say it is definitely this, everywhere is always exceptionally clean and tidy. It is evident that Mr Neil takes pride in what he does and works extremely hard alongside other behind the scenes staff members.

The kindest place where everyone is welcome and valued. My children were very happy here and achieved beyond their expectations. Thank you.

Loughborough University

Epinal Way, Loughborough LE11 3TU, UK – 01509 222222

Along with supportive staff, amazing accommodation and sporting facilities that are out of this world, this University is an incredibly special place. I am very lucky to have been part of the award winning student experience that contributes so much to local and national communities and charities. At Loughborough, nobody is left alone and everyone is encourage and supported to do their best. I loved being part of the SNO society and Action Volunteering, where I worked at the Soup Kitchen in town and helped at a local school to build their play area equipment. I met so many friends and I would recommend that others consider Loughborough as their choice of University. !

Loughborough University is a wonderful Campus university with some cool accommodation for 1st years. It also has some large and useful lecture theatres. Great food and good selection of accommodation and course choices.
