The tiniest royal is growing up before our very eyes! Princess Charlotte’s first day at nursery has finally arrived.

In photographs taken by mum Kate and shared by Kensington Palace, the two-year-old princess looked cute as a button, snug in a burgundy coat paired with a delicate pink scarf, and mini Mary Janes. She was toting a darling floral rucksack.

Princess Charlotte’s first day at nursery

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s youngest daughter, who will be turning three in May, is a pupil at Willcocks Nursery School in London, which was founded in 1964.

Quite conveniently, it is located at the Holy Trinity Church along Prince Consort Road. This is just a short distance away from Kensington Palace, where the royals live.

Willcocks is a traditional nursery school, which strives to uphold high standards, excellence and good manners.

Their nursery program values learning through activities that promote interaction and observation. These include poetry, acting, and singing. Pupils will also have fun learning experiences through sports, painting, cooking, and music.

“The Willcocks Nursery School is where only the kindest and most encouraging teachers make every day quite wonderful,” writes one parent in praise of the school. “By the time goodbyes are said your children hardly realise they’ve become almost grown up and the most well behaved, caring, sharing and cheerful children you could ever hope to find.”

It’s no wonder Prince William and Duchess Kate chose this school to begin their youngest’s academic journey!

Prince George’s first day of school

Princess Charlotte’s first day at nursery wasn’t the only royal milestone they marked recently. Prince George, aged four, also had his first day back at school at St. Thomas Battersea in London.

Before moving to his present school, he went to a more modestly-priced nursery at Westacre Montessori School in Norfolk. 

While a nursery education at Willcock’s costs £3050 (5513 SGD) per term, Westacre Montessori’s tuition is just £33 (60 SGD) per day.

Both Prince William and Prince Harry also received a Montessori-style early education, having studied at Mrs Mynors’ School in Notting Hill, London.

We wonder, will Prince George and Princess Charlotte one day go to the University of St. Andrews, where their daddy William and mummy Kate met and fell in love?

Whichever school they move to next, this we know for sure: with devoted parents guiding them along the way, these young royals will surely get the very best education, at school and at home.
