Our woodland classroom A Prepatoria education - learn more about our Reggio Emilia-inspired approach Shrewsbury Prepatoria is not seeking to be an outstanding nursery, it is redefining what Pre-school education should be Take a look at our prospectus Engaging spaces for every stage The Art Studio Better than recommended ratios - ensuring individual attention and development


Shrewsbury Prepatoria is a Pre-school and Nursery offering a Reggio Emilia education for children, from birth to five years of age.

From September 2018, we’re excited to offer ‘The Prepatoria School’, for children five to seven years of age. 

By the time a child is three years old, the brain is 80% hardwired. What happens in these early years lays the foundation for success in later life.

We’ve created a different kind of early years education. Here, instead of feeling guilty for leaving your child, you’ll feel confident in the investment you’re making in their future.

Children leave us literate, numerate, capable, strong, resilient and confident, thanks to our well-qualified team and better than recommended ratio of children to adults.

Our inspiring Art Studio and outdoor spaces are full of provocative and creative resources. Forest School is integral, as our early years teacher is a fully qualified Forest School Leader.

Children spend quality time each day in their Key Person group. They eat together and play to build warm and nurturing relationships. Children will move from one group to another according to their emotional and intellectual development, rather than age.

Our Nursery and Pre-school is open fifty weeks of the year from 8 am to 4 pm with a ‘Late Care’ option available.

Families in receipt of the 15 hour entitlement, 15 hour extended offer or 24U funding are welcome at the Prepatoria
