Princess Charlotte is expected to start nursery this week

Princess Charlotte could be in for a very important week this week, as the young royal is expected to start at nursery school for the first time.

Kensington Palace announced in December that Princess Charlotte would be starting Willocks Nursery School in ‘January 2018′, and according to the Willocks Nursery School website, the spring term starts back on January 4th. So, if starting on the same day as other children, Princess Charlotte is expected to join the rest of the pupils to begin her early education.

When confirming where Princess Charlotte would go to nursery, Kensington Palace also revealed that Willcocks was looking forward ‘to welcoming Charlotte to our nursery in January.’

Charlotte is expected to attend the Early Years Foundation Stage until she is five-years-old. According to the nursery, this stage of education will give its pupils guidance and understanding across personal, social and emotional development, as well as communication and language.

With Charlotte already a huge fan of tennis and dancing, it sounds like she’ll have a lot of fun.

While it’s not known if there will be any official photographs of Princess Charlotte on her first day at nursery, as there was on Prince George’s first day of school last September, many royal watchers and fans are hoping that the Duchess of Cambridge will snap at least one picture of the little royal as she gets ready for the first day.

Kate took similar pictures of Prince George before his first day at the Westacre Montessori nursery in Norfolk in January 2016.
