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!

I just wanted to share my thoughts about the nursery and say thank you to the whole staff team. My child has been in the nursery since 9months and is now leaving to go to school. He has had an amazing time while being here and experienced the nursery from room too room... the staff are friendly and very approachable. I am confident enough to say my child is now ready for school and will truly miss the nursery, shame they don't offer after school facilities or club. Look forward to seeing you all on graduation. Thanks Harry

I would highly recommend modern day nursery. My son started in April 2018 before that my daughter attended for 2years and is now at school confident and happy. Very nice staff and caring thank you to the whole team.

No negative points to be thought of currently

Independent Schools

Oak Heights school

Red Lion Court, Alexandra Rd, Hounslow TW3 1JS, UK – 020 8577 1827

We made a wise decision to choose Oak heights Independent School for our daughter. The school has high standards of teaching specially Maths and science. Mr.Dhillion the head teacher shows special interest in students day to day learning. He is very dedicated to the school and its progress. Mr.Prashar the physics teacher, explains the subject till the students get it, no matter if he needs to repeat it again and again. I strongly recommend Oak heights. As it is better than some of the grammar schools. The bonus is that extra tuitions twice a week included in the tuition fees. 5* rating....

Ok so let me start.. alot of people saying Beavers isn't a good school kids are not behaved well etc etc ... STOP ! This school is very very good a 5 star worth school. My child goes to this school and has learnt so much and looks forward to going to school every other day. The teachers are amazing and very polite. The receptionists are lovely and I feel welcomed at all times. Upbringing starts from home you cannot blame a school at all or expect them to upbring your child for you. So STOP having negative thoughts of this school or listening to so called Rumors because I tell you they aren't true at all !!

Westbrook Primary School

Westbrook Rd, Heston, Hounslow TW5 0NB, UK – 020 8570 9942

I have loads of experiences in this school. I have many many friends from there and to be honest it's quite a good school. I'm now in yr7 and I have moved on. But one thing, teachers pick on some people and don't listen to some people's opinion. When the new building got build teachers only cared about the building not the students ( for example they used to say to not touch the wall?????!!!!! ) but it's a very good school.

I think the school as a whole is excellent! The teachers are amazing and everything is well organised. The headteacher is also fantastic and always makes room for improvement. However a huge downside is the receptionist team who are all extremely rude. Countless times they have not been polite to parents especially when communicating with those whose first language is not English. They should definitely be taught some basic manners to improve their attitude to working life at the school. It's a big shame as the school is really good overall, however they are a huge let down to the school's reputation.
