Within a bright and colourful environment, Micklefield Preparatory Department provides an excellent first step for your child’s introduction to education. Fully supported by qualified, experienced and enthusiastic staff, the children are encouraged to develop their full creative and academic potential, learning to think, question and evaluate.

Our Preparatory children enjoy all the facilities of the main school as well as the multi-sensory experiences in Belton House and the surrounding area.

Prospective parents are welcomed to our popular Parent and Toddler group sessions, where it is possible to meet the staff along with other parents and their children.

Micklefield children experience all areas within the Early Years Learning Goals. Children are introduced to phonics and pre-reading skills. Fine motor control activities help to develop writing skills. Fun, thought-provoking, numeric activities help build the children’s understanding of mathematics. By nurturing a curiosity of the world around us, their knowledge and understanding of the environment helps to develop their creative language and confidence.

Micklefield School is committed to healthy eating and hot lunches are available to all Preparatory children in their own dining area.

We are aware that good communication between home and school is essential and staff will always be available to speak to you. We believe that when young children are happy and settled they learn and have fun.
