Preschools usually work around a formal curriculum and trained teachers - making them a little more expensive! Nursery schools are usually a more relaxed learning environment and more flexible enrolment terms. They are also cheaper and vary greatly.

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.

Busy Bees at Newcastle Upon Tyne

Cobalt Business Park, 1 A Silver Fox Way, Newcastle upon Tyne NE27 0QJ, UK – 0191 257 8842

Love this nursery, I'm so glad it was recommended to me. There's a close family feel to the place and when my child first attended he was painfully shy and seemed behind in his speech. Within a couple of months he came out of his shell, thanks to his key worker relationship. Food is made fresh on the premises and there's a healthy balanced diet, plenty of learning and development through play.

Roseway House Care Home

Wear St, Jarrow NE32 3JN, UK – 0191 489 0200

A very good friend has been in here for approx 19 months and upon his arrival I honestly didn't think he would have a very good quality of life after having a stroke 4 months prior. He has went from strength to strength with the support and care from the staff. He couldn't string two words together and needed help in everything he done. Now he can hold a conversation with u and also feeds himself and has took a few steps among other things. He has came a long way which nobody thought possible. The staff are always very friendly and happy to answer any questions you may have. Keep up the good work ladies & gents

I have visited this care home several times over the last two years. The staff are always friendly and go above and beyond their duties to help the residents. My friends father has come on leaps and bounds since being in there. I can only put this down the the care the staff have given him.

All 5 of my children have been to this school over the years, good school then but it's a much better and supportive school now they have a new headteacher. Without Mrs Shaw and other staff my son would still be noted as just a naughty child. With Mrs Shaw's help he is now in the right school that can meet needs. They are also supporting my daughter massively with the learning support that she needs. Cant thank them enough. OUTSTANDING SCHOOL for support from all the family not just the children.
