Bobtails-Ofsted-2014.PDF About Bobtails...

Bobtails is run by Pat West and Yvonne Bradley. Both women have raised children of their own and have been involved in childcare for over 20 years.

Bobtails first opened in May 2000 and was the first childcare provider to be awarded the prestigious “West Sussex Early Childhood Quality Award” - something we are still very proud of.

Small and perfectly proportioned

Bobtails is a friendly Montessori school for children aged 2 to 5 years of age. Because we are a smaller school, our staff : child ratio is high and that’s how we like it. It means that every child at Bobtails gets the attention and support, we want them to have.

Bobtails & the Montessori Method

As a Montessori school. our approach to childcare emphasises independence, self-confidence and the joy of learning. Montessori education is recognised the world over and many of the founder, Maria Montessori’s, educational principles have been adopted by mainstream school and form part of every day life for many children.

Opening Times & Sessions

Bobtails provides daily childcare, from 8.45am until 4.15pm, Monday to Friday in line with local school term times. We believe that the best childcare works in partnership with parents and our term-time schedule means that families can make the most of their time together outside of school and nursery. Download full details of our opening times here. Please note that all our Friday sessions finish at 12.30pm.

Aiming for the highest standards of staff and care

Every member of staff at Bobtails Montessori Nursery is fully qualified to work with children and have demonstrated a real enthusiasm for what they do. Our passionately held beliefs about giving children the best start in life, are shared by every team member at Bobtails. Our goal is to ensure that every Bobtails child is Happy, Healthy & Safe.
