Princess Charlotte to begin nursery school with all-female staff

Princess Charlotte is set to begin school at a nursery with all-female staff in the new year, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have revealed.

The mini royal will attend Willcocks Nursery School, near Prince William and Kate Middleton's Kensington home in London.

It costs £3050 (NZ$5834) per term to send a child to the morning school, which has been described by other parents as a "kind and gentle" centre, The Telegraph reports.

After attending a short "stay and play" session, according to the nursery's website, the royal couple will be encouraged to leave their two-year-old to see how she reacts.

The morning school currently has 32 students.

Princess Charlotte may also attend the afternoon school at £1800 (NZ$3440) per term - which follows a less structured, music and arts based curriculum.

In September Charlotte's older brother, four-year-old Prince George, nervously attended his first day of school at Thomas's Battersea.
