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.

Best Richmond Secondary Schools -

Twickenham School

Percy Rd, Twickenham TW2 6JW, UK – 020 8894 4503

Both our kids are at this school. Delighted with the turnaround under the new leadership and we love the staff, who seem very happy and settled too. Turned down two other 'popular' schools for our youngest son because we're so happy with Twickenham School. And no regrets whatsoever!

Excellent School. Run by dedicated educational professionals - couldn’t wish for better. My son loves it and without a doubt is on track for a great education. Twickenham is an excellent role model for other schools.

Grey Court School

Ham Street, Richmond TW10 7HN, UK – 020 8948 1173

Grey Court has been great for both my kids, lots of sport, inspiring teachers and dedicated teaching. The whole school community has been supportive and welcoming. Proud to be part of it all.

The Greycourt School of 2017 is ambitious, grounded and - most importantly to me - cuts an authentic place for itself in a world where the concept of a truly powerful education is poorly understood and rarely realised. As a parent who's seen his son move through the last five years steadily and progressively - I see huge improvements each year. The Head Teacher has a powerful vision, works tirelessly for the good of the students and continues to build a reputation for aspiration, consistency and success both in terms of bringing thinking, richly equipped young adults into a challenging world and in terms of the extraordinary shift in academic achievement. The growing sense of community and purpose inherent in the culture of the school is self-evident in the rich and diverse range of events that the school and the Parents Association put on. Is every student a raging fan of Greycourt? Of course not. (Hence some of the negative voices articulated below.) But take just an hour to visit the school for yourself and you'll soon understand that this is school that values development, cherishes difference and puts to shame some of its more comfortable and wealthier neighbours.

Radnor House Independent School

21 Cross Deep, Twickenham TW1 4QG, UK – 020 8891 6264

Some of the "reviews" on this school seem to be written by people who have no experience of it, or are written by people who have an axe to grind for various reasons. My experience is our son has been attending the school in year 7 and has so far completed two terms. Previously he was at Hampton Prep for his primary school years. My wife and I picked the school after attending a couple of open days and speaking with the teachers, who we found to be highly motivated and enthusiastic. Now we have two terms experience I think we can start to form some conclusions. The first is that our initial impression about the quality of the teachers has proved correct. Our son really enjoys school and has found new motivation to work hard to try and achieve his potential. We have also found the teachers to be accessible, constructive and helpful. One point to note is that a new headmaster has recently taken over at the school. He has a good level of experience having been a headmaster previously for a number of years. I hope (and expect) that the foundations laid by his predecessor will be continued, in particular with the method of recruiting talented teaching professionals. My suggestion would be if you are considering sending your child to Radnor House is to go along to an open day, ask challenging questions, and judge for yourself. The school is definitely worth including in your short list, and my wife and I are very pleased we chose it for our eldest son.

Nice school in nice location

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....

Amazing school ! A very good learning environment

London Massage Courses

Breamwater Gardens, Richmond TW10 7SF, UK

The massage course was a birthday present for my husband and the idea was that we would have a better idea of how to massage each other. We have young children and can’t always go out for a date night. We spent a lovely morning with Claire and both learnt a massage routine and some basic techniques. Claire is warm and friendly. We had plenty of time to practise the routine and Claire was really specific and cared that we both understood what we were doing. Claire runs other courses so I’m sure we will be back for her Indian head massage course next :)

We opted for the Holistic Massage one-to-one training in our own home. Claire was professional yet friendly, and very thorough in her approach. We finished feeling we had had some very comprehensive basic training, and feel confident to begin to develop our own practice. We are very happy to recommend Claire and London Therapists to anyone wanting to learn the basics of holistic massage.

Centre for Short Courses & CPD

Waldegrave Rd, Twickenham TW1 4SX, UK – 020 8240 4321

I am studying L3 sports massage at St Mary's. We are 8 weeks in. The anatomy and physiology (A&P) lectures are held in the morning followed by practical massage classes in the afternoon. The A&P lectures are really interesting and presented clearly but the amount of information given feels huge sometimes so being organised and reviewing the information regularly is key. The lecture slides are available beforehand which is really useful. The practical massage sessions are fun and literally 'hands on'. We practice on each other! Practising on different people provides excellent insight in to different body and muscle types. The course is very enjoyable.

I am currently winding up on the short course in anatomy and physiology and am in love with it! Linda is the most amazing and incredible teacher I have ever had. She makes the subject interesting and enjoyable and has the best knowledge and experience of the body.

Kumon Maths & English

130 St. Margarets Rd, Twickenham TW1 1RL, UK – 020 8707 5612

My son has been a member of Kumon for 4 year. During this time his maths skills has gone from strength to strength. His metal maths, quick recall of numbers are very good. Daily sheets is a commitment by both the child and the parent for encouragement - but definitely builds confidence with numbers and learning to work alone. The support gained at the Kumon center in St Margaret’s has been great, very supportive, individual and understanding. It will give you a great start to being ahead in maths.

My sons enjoy going to Kumon in St Margarete every week and Kumon is giving them great studying habit and confidence. Teacher Neetal and all other assistants are very helpful and friendly. We are all happy choosing Kumon at St margarete study centre!
