0-3 Year Old Childcare

Rooftops Montessori Nursery School Richmond

We have a homely run baby room and a separate toddler room where we work closely with parents to follow a home from home environment. Once you have visited us and decided you want to book a place for your child, we arrange settling in sessions for us to get to know your child and for you as parents to get to know us.

We follow the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stages) of learning and introduce the Montessori approach to toddlers in preparation for them moving into the pre-school.

As part of your child’s ongoing development we have regular parent sessions where you can meet with your child’s key-worker and discuss their learning journey. We also have daily diaries where we communicate what your child has been doing that day, what they have eaten and how much they have slept.  You can also use these to let us know any important information about your child.

We try to get outside daily depending on the weather into our newly designed garden and outside area.  We also do lots of art & crafts, music and singing, role play, group activities and circle time with the children.

Rooftops Nursery School Barnard Castle


At Rooftops Nursery School Barnard Castle we provide two warm nurturing baby rooms connected by a milk connection. We encourage our babies to explore the world around them through a wide variety of sensory activities using heuristic resources. We have strong parent partnerships which allows us to work closely with our parents to provide the best learning opportunities for their children.
Once you have visited the nursery and decided to join us we will arrange some settling in sessions for us to get to know you and your child, and for you to get to know us.
We follow the EYFS and encourage your children to be independent as they grow and learn new skills. We have a large garden which we use daily providing the children with the opportunity to explore nature.

Our toddlers have their own room where staff support them as they begin to become independent and express their individual personalities.
The children have access to our outdoor free flow area where they can explore the mud kitchen, filling and pouring in the water and sand trays.
