The school which has been described by the royals as “kind and gentle” has an all-female staff and has been declared “outstanding” by the most recent Ofsted inspection.
The nursery was founded in 1964 by Diana Willcocks and has been in the same location in the church hall of Holy Trinity Church in Kensington since 1984. It is now run by Lavina Taylor.
The nursery’s stated ethos is "for high standards, excellence and good manners."
Princess Charlotte will be introduced to pottery and poetry classes and to singing and dancing. Although there is a large focus on art and music, children will also explore the outdoors and pay visits to museums and parks.
“As your child builds a rapport with the teachers, we will ask you to stay in the vicinity for the first few sessions so that you can return if needed,” the school’s statement reads.
The nursery holds a morning school for 32 youngsters, aged almost three to five years old, who are in class five days a week for three hours. Princess Charlotte may start with afternoon classes which are less structured.
According to the magazine Tatler, the nursery school is a "hidden gem" and it is attended by British children and "chic foreigners" alike. Some parents register their children at birth in order to make sure they have a place at the school.
The nursery charges £3,050 ($4,080) a term for mornings and £1,800 ($2,408) for afternoons, making it a hefty £14,500 ($19,399) l if pupils attend both sessions over three terms.
