The Pre-School Day

Ruspini House offers a flexible service to suit all families and their children

For working parents, we can offer a  wrap around service from 8.00 a.m. - 6.00 p.m. 50 weeks a year.

We offer a morning or afternoon session, a pre-school day from 8.45 a.m. - 4.00 p.m., a full day from 8.00 a.m. – 6.00 p.m, early and late clubs term time (38 weeks) and holiday camps (12 weeks); you can mix and match to suit your needs.

We recommend a minimum of three sessions per week at the age of two, five sessions at the age of three, gradually increasing to ten sessions in preparation for the move to Reception.

During their day with us, your son/daughter will benefit from our superb facilities and a rich and varied educational experience. French, Spanish, tennis, ICT and music lessons are optional and will be an additional cost.
