Read about a parent who explains why Charlotte House held so much appeal for her daughter, having heard great reports from friends and family, and how excited her child was to join the school this September.

Aanal’s story: New Beginnings

“I am particularly excited by the extra-curricular music and singing…”

Charlotte House had several new joiners in September 2021, not least the young nursery starters. Aanal’s daughter Aarya joined the school and she couldn’t be more delighted that her three-year-old will get to join the Charlotte House family.

Aanal and her husband were recommended Charlotte House by family whose daughters benefitted from the academic quality and nurturing environment that the school offers.

Aanal and her husband decided to view Charlotte House during an Open Day. She says: “We were greeted by the Headmistress and we were then shown round by two current pupils who exuded so much confidence and spoke so highly about the teachers. It was very genuine and heartfelt, and so encouraging to see. First impressions are very important, and I really loved the school.

‘The teachers interacted beautifully with the girls; it’s obviously very close knit and like a family.’

Aanal was also impressed that the teachers had been there a long time, and says the nursery school teacher spoke to her with real enthusiasm. She adds: ‘I was very impressed to hear how the classes work and that my daughter will be able to learn Spanish. We are happy to have such flexibility on hours for Aarya at the nursery. During our visit we could see Aarya felt very at home, enjoying the outside play area and the stimulation of the classroom.’

With its wide range of activities, the nursery offers Aanal’s daughter the chance to get involved in all sorts of new things. ‘I am particularly excited by the extra-curricular music and singing, which Aarya loves.’

The aim for Aanal and her husband is that Aarya enjoys the benefits of her Charlotte House education until she is 11. ‘I am very positive about her starting at the nursery, and I have no doubt the whole experience will make her confident and well rounded, as you would expect from a Charlotte House pupil.’
