Welcome to St Christopher's: Nurturing the Early Years!
The first seven years of your child’s life are the foundation for a lifetime of learning and growth. At St Christopher’s, we specialise in the education of children aged 2¾ to 7, dedicating our focus exclusively to this crucial age group, free from distractions of older children.
Our highly qualified and talented staff bring expertise to create a nurturing and joyful environment. We guide your children through their formative years, laying the groundwork for their educational journey ahead.
Our well-rounded and capable children are in high demand by subsequent schools, boasting a 100% success rate in parents securing their preferred 1st or 2nd choice of school.
While it’s too early, at 3 years old, to determine each child’s ability and learning preference, by the age of 7, your child has matured. We stand ready to support and guide each family in making a choice that is just right for them. Join us at St Christopher’s, where the early years are the heart of a thriving educational experience!

The opportunities for responsibility are endless, fostering growth and happiness.
