The greatest gift we can give a child is to instil a love of learning, starting in Nursery and which stays with them through their Early Years and School Years.

At Polam we take children from Nursery age, all the way through to 9 years old (Year 4), progressing them through both structured and play-based learning.  With a varied curriculum built to suit each age and ability range, Polam Pre-Prep offers children the best possible start on their educational journey.

On top of subjects such as Mathematics, English and Science, we also provide an extended curriculum including a range of opportunities in Sport, Swimming, Music and Languages. We see this as an important part in the development of our children as it gives them a chance to express themselves and experience new areas of learning.


From 12 months to 3 years, babies and toddlers benefit from our well-equipped and comfortable Nursery, where they receive personal attention from our caring and highly trained staff.
