Princess Charlotte is growing up — and heading to school!
The two-year-old will be attending Willcocks Nursery School starting in January 2018. The school, which is based in a church hall, is next door to London’s Royal Albert Hall, and very close to the family’s Kensington Palace home.
A royal source tells PEOPLE, “They chose that nursery because they thought it would be an ideal first step for Charlotte’s education and they were impressed by the team who work there.”
Tuition at Willcocks runs at £3,050 — or $4073 — per term, with three terms per year. The total annual tuition is £9,150, or $12,221. The school says it “strives to maintain its ethos for high standards, excellence and good manners” on their website.
“We are delighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen the Willcocks Nursery School for Princess Charlotte,” the school said in a statement released by the couple’s office. “We look forward to welcoming Charlotte to our nursery in January.”
The school’s website describes the atmosphere as “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.”
