F1- Mrs Lunn


Mrs Lunn and Mrs Remedios are so pleased that the children have made such a positive start to Nursery. There have been several visitors in the first half term and each visitor has commented on how settled the children are and how engaged they are in their play and learning. Please ask to look at our visitors' book. Well done children! We are so proud of you.



Here is useful information for our parents and carers.


Early Years Funding:

Use the website below to find out about 15 hours free childcare per week which all three years are entitled to. This funding can be used for your child to start at Nursery the term after their 3rd birthday. You can also find out via the website if your child is eligible for 30 hours free childcare:


Please register your child's name at our office if you would like him/her to access funded hours at Rokeby Nursery. We welcome all children and families.

         Stories to share

Reading together with your child is hugely important in helping him or her to develop vocabulary, listening skills and an enjoyment of books. This is why, at Rokeby Nursery, we send home story bags with books and puppets inside for you to enjoy with your child. Please take time to read the stories in the story bags together.


For further reading, here is a list of stories that link to this half term's theme of Celebrations. Ask at Rugby Library to see if you can loan any of these books to share with your child at home. Several of these texts are also on sale in The Works.

Happy reading!
