A Happy, Caring Environment "The staff are very caring, there are cuddles galore and plenty of laughter, it is almost a home from home which is perfect for 3-5 year olds.” Current parent. Happiness is a fundamental factor in a child’s education and at Kent College we place great emphasis on ensuring that girls thrive in a happy learning environment where they feel safe, secure and able to be themselves. We are very proud of our exceptional teacher and pupil relationships and the high staff to pupil ratio ensures that each girl has plenty of individual attention and support.A Kent College teacher prides themselves on understanding the individual needs of every child in their care and it is this knowledge that enables the school to provide an outstanding education which sees every pupil exceed their potential. "The mutual respect promoted by teachers and shown by pupils in appreciating and encouraging the contributions of all members of the class is a notable characteristic of the school.” (ISI Report 2016) The Great Outdoors Time to play in the great outdoors is vital for little ones and at Kent College we are blessed to have a beautiful location with woodland and open fields adjacent to the school site. We encourage girls to spend as much time outside as possible. Strawberry picking at the local farm, growing vegetables in the schools’ veggie patch, Forest School days and letting off steam on the outdoor activity ‘trim trail’ enriches girls both in and out of the classroom. Support for Busy Families "Warm and friendly relations are reflected in the extremely harmonious and constructive atmosphere in the after-school care provision.” (ISI Report 2016) Finding a Nursery with good wraparound care is very important for working parents and at Kent College we offer busy families flexibility when juggling work and home lives. Wraparound care is available from 7.30am. In addition, holiday care is also offered during certain weeks in the holidays. Visit Visits are a must, whichever setting you are looking at, and we would recommend visiting multiple times.
