Head's Welcome

Abigail Carr, Head of Preschool and Nursery School

Welcome to Mount Kelly International Preschool and Nursery School. A happy, vibrant school where our children love to learn. At Mount Kelly, we understand that the foundations for successful learning, intellectual development, social development and well-being are laid in Early Childhood. Our Preschool and Nursery School support play-based, child-centered learning through the implementation of the British Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.

We know that when a child is engrossed in play, whether it is free, guided, adventure or social play, they learn deeply about themselves and the world around them. When actively interacting with their environment, their peers and their teachers, children develop social and cognitive skills, become emotionally mature, and gain the self-confidence required to engage in new experiences. At Mount Kelly International Preschool and Nursery School there is not a choice between “Play” and “Academics”. Play is the foundation of intellectual development and the catalyst for solid academic achievement.

Excellence in early childhood education begins with extending the love and security of the home experience into our school, with the dedicated care and thoughtful direction

from the highest qualified and committed teachers. Our team is dedicated to ensuring that each child’s sense of belonging, being and becoming of their individual identity and personal well-being.

At Mount Kelly International Preschool and Nursery School, we know and endeavour to ensure that every child learns at their best, with their heart, mind and body developed in a secure and happy, educational setting.
