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.

Scallywags Day Nursery

Overton House, Cold Overton Rd, Oakham LE15 6NT, UK – 01572 723810

A great nursery. This is a place where my children and others have fun. I work as a teacher and SPECIFICALLY chose this one because of their great attitude to children and OFSTED. Early years should be about fun and exploring (also the rest of life ๐Ÿ˜‰) Caroline, the director, and told me (paraphrasing) that they don't focus on getting an excellent OFSTED because that would be too prescriptive and not as fun for the children. The children truely like their carers/teachers and the carers/teachers grueling like their children

Secondary Schools

Catmose College

Huntsmans Dr, Oakham LE15 6RP, UK – 01572 770066

Itโ€™s a good school in general, some teacher are good. The school gives you help and support when need.

This is a brilliant secondary school, if you live in Rutland. It's pretty spacious, so there aren't large crowds. The teachers here where really helpful and friendly, they helped me to turn from a D grade student, into a C grade student (but most of it was my own hard work). Don't listen to one or two star reviews on this school, as they are just ex-student annoyed at the school (for some reason). Also the architecture of this school is really impressive.

Oakham School

Chapel Close, Market Pl, Oakham LE15 6DT, UK – 01572 758500

I attended Oakham School for two years in the upper school. I had a brilliant experience. Coming from another School I was anxious that I would feel like an outsider, but the teachers and pupils were extremely welcoming, and I fast felt like I had been there for years. I also was able to study Economics and Politics, which I would not have been able to at any other local education provider. I went on amazing trips including to New York and Washington where I visited various political and business landmarks. I really enjoyed being a part of a House and the family feel this had. A particular highlight of my days at Oakham were the School lunches that were fantastic, the catering team worked hard to offer a wide range of food that was of a high quality. I would highly recommend Oakham School to any individual that wants a well-rounded education that goes beyond the walls of the classroom.

I spent 8 years being a pupil at Oakham school and I loved every single one!
