Q & A



If you would like a place for your child at our nursery please telephone - 01788 811218 to make an appointment to look around and during your visit we will explain everything you need to know about how the nursery operates.

What happens if my child is ill?

It is unavoidable that small children catch all kinds of minor ailments and infections. Our aim is for every child to have a speedy recovery and to prevent the other children in the nursery from becoming ill, therefore an ill child needs to be at home to recover. If the illness is infectious, we have set exclusion periods which are explained in the Parents Handbook.

Starting Nursery

Starting nursery sessions is a big step for you and your child and we are here to make the transition a smooth and happy one. We have Introductory Sessions where you can come along with your child to get to know more about the nursery and meet the staff. We encourage a positive friendly relationship with parents and your feedback is important.

Communication! Parents as Partners

At The Rugby Montessori Nursery School we believe that parents are every child's first educator.

Parents are encouraged to telephone in to check on their child at any time during their nursery session.

Every child has a Learning Journal and their progress and development is closely monitored throughout their nursery experience. We hold regular Parents Evenings providing an opportunity to look at the lovely work on display and read through your child's Learning Journal. We encourage parents to come in straight away if there is anything they wish to discuss about their child, as we believe that with good communication everyone is happy.

School Uniform

Each child is required to have a school sweatshirt, welly bag and book bag. These are available from the school. It is requested that all clothes which may be removed are labelled with the child’s name.

Introductory Classes for Parents and Children

These take place in the morning sessions during term time, allowing your little one to get a taste of their new room whilst they play. Parents are welcome to stay and chat to the staff.

Holiday Activity Schools

Here at The Rugby Montessori Nursery School, we are pleased to say that we arrange Holiday Schools during each holiday period. This means that we are open throughout the year.
During each term, parents are invited to join our Holiday School for the next holiday period and they are always very popular. Parents can have the sessions of their choice during Holiday Schools (subject to availability) and these can be different to those sessions taken up during term-time. Costings and full details are supplied to every parent during each term.
Holiday Schools are run by our own Montessori qualified staff, so there are no new faces for the children to get used to. During Holiday School the Montessori Teaching philosophy still applies throughout, but there is more time to enjoy art and craft topics and all activities are themed according to the time of year. We also take every opportunity to enjoy our beautiful surroundings.
Our aim is to provide a happy stimulating environment, but with a relaxed atmosphere so that each child has an enjoyable Holiday School experience.
