Good Morning, Sweet Prince, It's Time to Go Off to School—and Smash Another Tradition
The school, located in a racially and economically mixed area of London, is run by Jane Mynors, 43, the daughter of an Anglican bishop. Its 36 children are divided into three groups named cygnets (William's bunch), little swans and big swans. Like most London nursery schools, Mrs. Mynors uses the Montessori method: The children are allowed to proceed at their own rate, with a daily regimen of clay modeling, painting and, sometimes, singing lessons. William, who will go to school two or three times a week at a cost of about $280 a term, is not the only William in attendance, although he is the only one with a personal bodyguard. The other, older William is called William B. to tell the difference.
Two hours after he entered, the chauffeur-driven station wagon picked up the prince and carried him home to Mum and Dad. "He liked it," was all Mrs. Mynors would say. Sure enough, as his driver pulled away, William proudly held up the fruits of his first day's labors for the eager press: a paper finger puppet of a mouse he had made all by himself.
