Nursery Schools

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 enrolment terms. They are also cheaper and vary greatly.

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

What does preschool mean? A preschool, or nursery school, is a pre-primary school, or play school for early childhood education. Preschool is for children before they begin compulsory education at primary school. 

Is Pre K considered preschool? Pre K schools are pre-kindergartens.

Our daughter has been at Little Ones since she was 10 months old and in September starts her new journey into school. She has loved every minute of nursery life, from cuddles and care she receives from every member of staff to the exciting activities she gets to play with on a daily basis and the most amazing home cooked food that is prepared freshly on site by the lovely cook. As parents we go off to work knowing that our daughter is being cared for by amazing people who look after her just as we would at home.

I studied here for 6 weeks this summer. It was an amazing experience. Everything was perfect: teachers, trips, organization, hostfamily. My goal was a B2 certificate and thanks to one-to-one lesson, grammar class and Ielts class I toke my certificate in five weeks. I improved more than one level (I was a bad B1 :( ) in 6 weeks, and this was possible only thanks to the professionalism of the school.

My recession is not very relevant anymore, but still I want to record, what a great time (for three months) I was able to spend here.

Private Tutors

Exeter Tuition Centre

13 Queen's Terrace, Exeter EX4 4HR, UK – 01392 927207

ETC is an excellent tuition centre. I have twin boys who were struggling with their basic reading and writing skills. The team were welcoming and my chaps loved coming. They have improved enormously and grown in confidence. I highly recommend ETC To anyone. They have transformed my boys to making learning fun. Thank you.

My daughter has attended Exeter tuition for two years now and has had a lovely time. Her confidence has soared and academically she has improved in leaps and bounds. It was always a struggle to get her to concentrate or do homework but Vicky has performed miracles. I can highly recommend Exeter tuition whether your child needs a bit of a boost in confidence or needs more help academically to pass 11+ or extra help with GCSE’s... they cover it all.

Exeter Tutors Ltd

3 Wagon Hill Way, Exeter EX2 5GS, UK – 01392 580855

I would recommend Exeter Tutors without hesitation. My daughter needed extra support in Physics and Chemistry for her GCSE exams. Natalie has been brilliant. She is gentle and encouraging, never once making my daughter feel uncomfortable in asking a question. She has been supportive and given good revision advice. Sebastian has been professional, replying to queries quickly.

Kirstie was invaluable in helping prepare my son for his entrance exam in a very short amount of time. She was extremely positive and relaxed in her attitude, putting him at his ease and helping build his confidence, as well as improving his exam technique and knowledge. I would thoroughly recommend her as a tutor.

Beam Tuition

Exeter Phoenix Bradninch Place, Gandy St, Exeter EX4 3LS, UK – 01392 581737

We would thoroughly recommend Hettie as a fantastic English teacher. She had only 8 weeks to prepare our 12 year old for his entrance exam but was able to help him to make significant progress. He had never done a reading comprehension before, but with Hettie's encouraging and patient approach, he successfully passed and was offered a place at our first choice school. Daniel has his lessons via Skype as we live abroad. It has been very successful, work is sent by email and then I scan and send the answers back so that Hettie can mark them. We have decided to continue with the lessons with the focus now on spelling and grammar - International Schools don't seem to worry about things like that!!

Passion and commitment are hallmarks of Beam Tuition and are the cornerstones that have grown the business from a small start-up to an international client base. The student is always at the centre of Hettie' s tuition delivery.
