The best possible start
Our Pre-Preparatory Department is a safe, calm and nurturing environment for your little girl to start her school life.
Here, learning and growing takes place indoors and out all through the school year, led by our caring and qualified staff. Our girls are happy and settled and thrive under our expert guidance. From the first days they feel part of The Ladies' College family and stay with their friends as they move up to Melrose together.
