We want your child to feel happy and safe with us, nursery should be an enjoyable experience for children and a peace of mind for parents and carers. To ensure this is the case, we will work with you and decide how is best to help your child settle in at nursery.

We recommend the first step is to come in and have a look around, if you haven’t done so already. This will give you chance to meet the staff and see the children at play and daily life within the nursery.

If you decide you would like a place for your child at Christchurch Montessori, we ask that you fill out a registration form.

We recommend that your child has some settling in sessions before they start, this will introduce them slowly to the nursery environment. Staff will work with parents on play sessions and there duration according to the child’s individual personality and age.Session     9am to 12pm or 1pm
