Visit Us


Visiting a preschool gives you a great understanding of your child’s new environment that cannot be gleaned from websites and brochures. You and your child will be met by the preschool manager or other senior Montessori teacher. You will be shown around the classroom and will be given a brief introduction to our Montessori curriculum and shown how the classroom supports your child’s learning. All your questions will be answered.

Frequently Asked Questions

These are some questions we are often asked.

We take children from the day of their second birthday

Your child needs to attend regularly so they can settle and get the most from their preschool. For this reason you have to book a minimum of three sessions. A full day counts as two sessions.

To reserve a place for your child at Rushmore House you need to return the reservation form and the deposit which is stated on the form. We allocate sessions for your child on a first come first choice basis, so you need to return the form and deposit rapidly.

There is ample parking in Ringwood Avenue next to the preschool for easy drop off and pick up.

You will be invoiced every half term for the next half term. You have to pay before the next half term starts.

Most people pay by PC Banking, our account details are on the invoice. You can also pay by cheque or cash.
