According to its website, the Willcocks Nursery is a traditional nursery school which strives to maintain its ethos for "high standards, excellence and good manners." The morning school accommodates 32 children aged between two and five years old, and "is a fun and structured morning with lots of free play where children embark on the first stages of learning to read, write and to understand simple numbers with the minimum of pressure."

As for tuition, one morning term for each school year cost around $4,139. In addition, there is an afternoon term available ($2,443), as well as a lunch club, which cost around $2,361 per term if you opt for all three afternoons during the week.

The administrators at Willcocks Nursery School sent out a statement welcoming Princess Charlotte.

"We are delighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen the Willcocks Nursery School for Princess Charlotte," the statement reads. "We look forward to welcoming Charlotte to our nursery in January."

Princess Charlotte's brother, 4-year-old Prince George, began school at Thomas’s Battersea in September, which was one of the reasons why the royal family moved their home base from Norfolk to London last year. Meanwhile, Kate is currently pregnant with baby number three.
