Although Christopher Robin London Road opened in 2015, Nursery Manager Sophia and a number of the staff have been working with Christopher Robin for many more years, having built an enviable reputation for delivering exceptional care at Christopher Robin Merrow. When Christopher Robin Merrow closed its doors in 2015 (due to lease expiration) the staff and children from Merrow transferred to our lovely new building at London Road. Our staff team continue to deliver exceptional care and Montessori education in their new premises.
“Staff are excellent role models who engage respectfully with children and encourage them to develop high levels of respect and consideration for one and other. Children demonstrate that they feel extremely happy and safe in the nursery. Children successfully gain skills they need to move on to the next stage of their learning or school” (Ofsted, 2017)

Meet the team
"The staff have a high level of dedication to the care and development of the children they look after, so much so it’s admirable. We have always felt completely confident that our children have received the best care whilst they have been there. The staff took the time to get to know them individually and worked with their development in a group and also on a one to one basis.'' – Mr G
