The Minors is a nursery school for children aged 2 ½ – 5 years. Founded in 1975, it became part of the Alpha Plus Group in 2004 when it also moved into new premises in Notting Hill, London. The Minors Nursery School creates a happy, caring and secure environment where children can develop into independent, confident individuals. Children often progress to other schools within the group such as Wetherby School and Pembridge Hall School.
