Bobtails Montessori Nursery
We at Bobtails Montessori Nursery offer more than just childcare – we offer peace of mind! Everything we do is aimed at providing a caring, safe and educational environment for your child to learn and to have fun in. With our wealth of experience and knowledge of providing Montessori childcare for 2 to 5 year olds under our belts, we know more than most that sometimes a friendly face and a smile is all a child needs to feel happy and loved. But having said that, our huge choice of fun daily activities, our yummy, home-cooked food and qualified, caring team all help too! Our main goal is make sure that all of our Bobtails children are Happy, Healthy & Safe!
You can trust us to take good care of your little ones as our Bobtails team have over 50 years of childcare experience between them, and many of them have had their own children attend the nursery (some of which are now in their teens!). We first opened in May 2000 and we currently have and continue to have an outstanding Ofsted rating. We are also very proud to say, we were the first childcare provider to be awarded the prestigious ‘West Sussex Early Childhood Quality Award’.
So what does it mean to be a Montessori School? You may ask… well it means we emphasise independence, self-confidence and the joy of learning through self-directed activities, hands-on learning and collaborative play. Montessori education is renowned and has been adopted by most mainstream schools and form part of every day life for many children.
We provide daily childcare for 2 to 5 year olds, Monday to Friday from 8.45am until 4.15pm – however our Friday sessions do finish at 12.30pm. As for holiday times, we are in line with the local school term times. We believe that the best childcare works in partnership with parents and our term-time schedule. This in turn means that families can make the most of their time together outside of school and nursery.
We hold many different activities here from art & crafts, music & dance to storytime, drama classes, & educational fun! We even organise throughout the year a range of activities, events and outings for the children and their families, some of which have included: trips to local farms, woodlands, the beach, the local fire station and even the science museum. We guarantee that your child will have the best time in our care – in fact most don’t want to leave at the end of each day because they have had so much fun learning and making friends.
For parent’s peace of mind, we put together every week a menu of yummy and healthy food – We cater to all nutritional & dietary requirements too. We know that children love to eat tasty food, where as parents want them to eat healthily. Here at Bobtails, we think we have the balance just right! Our delicious ‘home-cooked’ meals are just the ticket and even some of our more fussier eaters can’t help themselves.
