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.

The Judd School

Brook Street, Tonbridge TN9 2PN, UK – 01732 770880

Pretty good school. As you would expect from any school, some teachers are better than others. Having said that, throughout my time at Judd, I have been thoroughly impressed by the level of teaching and the help and guidance available from staff. The school also enjoys a strong community spirit and as you can probably tell from some of the other reviews, has a healthy rivalry with Skinners. I will definitely miss my time as a student here as I move on to uni this year.

The Judd School is a great place to learn for secondary school students. It has a brilliant reputation for its high grades and excellent teaching. I am personally a student at this school and from my experience, the teachers make well-structured lessons and are always willing to answer questions and help students excel further. However, this is surprisingly not a "sink or swim" place. The buildings and facilities are sufficient, especially the science, technology and music departments. The Judd School even allows students to use the facilities for "super-curricular" activities and competitions.
