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.

Ash Field Academy

Broad Ave, Leicester LE5 4PY, UK – 0116 273 7151

Today, with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 7m digital planetarium experience to 75 students and 57 members of staff at Ash Field Academy. I was warmly welcomed by the staff and found the hall prepared just as I had requested. The day was well organised with all groups arriving on time. The excited students enjoyed a rich selection of sensory content: peering up at the night sky, walking through forests, across open plains and through canyons with towering cliffs above. Other students blasted off into space to enjoy the beauty of our blue planet as seen from the International Space Station. Thank you Ash Field Academy for a very pleasant visit.

I studied here for 9 years from 2004. A great place to study for anyone with special needs.

You can tell they have the relevant expertise and skill in their specialist fields. Please do not be put off, the students that complain are either not doing well or have not adjusted to the university life. Could not have chosen another uni!! Uni of Leicester is a top decent uni and I am proud to go here! :-)

Kumon Maths & English

74 The Parade, Oadby, Leicester LE2 5BF, UK – 0116 272 0371

My son's been coming to Kumon since he was four. He's 8 now and has excelled in both Math and English. In addition, it has done wonders for his confidence, willingness and ability to learn and apply his knowledge and skill in everyday life. My daughter has just turned three and she has been going for 3 weeks now and absolutely loves it! Mr G and Smita are great with the kids. Always friendly, attentive and all for the kids. Never seen any of this "bullying"! If there was I'm sure they wouldn't have been here as long as they have! Keep up the great work Mr G & Smeeta! Ignore the Haters!!!!

My 8 year old daughter started Kumon 4 months ago. I can already see her confidence boosting. Kumon is teamwork from tutors, children & parents.
