School History

Holland Park Pre-Prep School & Day Nursery was started in 1990 as simply Holland Park Day Nursery. Our founder, now proprietor and Headmistress, Kitty Mason, started the Nursery at 9 Holland Road, following it up with Holland Park Pre-Prep School which opened at number 5 in 1992. From the outset, her ambition was to provide individual, high quality childcare, as well as a well-rounded education for her sons Peter and Anthony. We still follow this path today and family members still send their children to receive this exceptional education. Our reputation has been founded on highly qualified enthusiastic teachers and small class sizes. Our alumini work all over the world for high achieving corporations. We welcome ex-pupils back for work experience every year and celebrate the great start in life they received when they came through our doors.

The school currently operates out of 5 Holland Road exclusively.

Our Ethos

Our school mission is to develop independent, confident and contented children.

We believe that the early years are the most important times in a child’s development. It is therefore our duty as a school to make sure that our children develop in a happy environment with the correct resources and teaching methods to make them confident and independent learners.

We believe that parental involvement is vital to this process, as well as employing the correct staff to nurture, respect and provide a safe and challenging environment in which the children are able to reach their goals.
