Prince George Nursery
So William & Kate have selected the Westacre Montessori School at East Walton as Prince George’s nursery, with him due to start late next month, not far from his parent’s Anmer Hall home in Norfolk.
With most headlines centering on the fact the future kings nursery only costs £33 per day, or is an Ofsted rated “good” school, we consider if other more ordinary mums and dads would be happy to have such a special guest mixing with their own children, or if such a high profile toddler would make the “special experience” promised by the school, special for the all the wrong reasons.
On the plus side, if your child was to make life long friends with the Prince, then they, and ultimately you, would surely benefit in the its who you know game in later life? Think of how much fun all those parties will be, and you could always call in a favor if your home extension planning application had been declined.
However, how would you feel if it was your child who has been hitting poor George at nursery with the drum sticks? That would be an embarrassing conversation to have, and one you wouldn’t be able to blame on the other child!
More seriously though, will your child actually get a normal nursery experience with the Prince in class? Will there be burly suited men in all four corners of the classroom, and many more outside with firearms unconvincingly hidden under their jackets?
In a statement, the school said: “We are looking forward to welcoming George to our nursery where he will get the same special experience as all of our children.” A nice idea of course, but very unlikely to be the same experience. The school run which is about a 20-minute drive from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s mansion is more likely to involve a fleet of vehicles travelling at high speed with police outriders, and maybe even a helicopter escort from above.
And if all this security isn’t the cases, then why not? he is the future King of England going from a well known point A (home) to another well known point B (nursery) during the working week, this predictability is very dangerous considering the number of enemies this Country, and thus the Crown now have.
Soft targets are the preferred target for some unmentionable organisations, and there is none as soft as a child’s nursery.
So, would you be happy and relaxed at work, whilst Prince George was in nursery with your child?
