  • Our Rooms

    Our nursery rooms, ages and class sizes
  • Children spend their time at rubadubs in Room Groups based on their age and stage of development.

  • We have large overlaps in the age range in each room, so a child will make the transition to a new group when they are developmentally ready.

      One of our parents
    • Our son has been at rubadubs since he was 9 months old, it is a lovely nursery. We are always impressed by the wide range of activities that the nursery offers from regular yoga and puppet shows (which our son talks about for days) to trips to the Horniman and supermarket.

      One of our parents
    • My Son has been at rubadubs for nearly a year now and I can honestly say that he loves it. The team around him are engaging from the first minute he gets there and if I have any concerns the staff always have time to speak with you and make you feel welcome.
