Little Grange Nursery opens - the first nursery in Rugby School Group

Little Grange Nursery, the first nursery in Rugby School Group, is now open! Rugby and Dunchurch’s newest nursery welcomed the first children into its care today (1 August). 

Enjoying an idyllic location on Bilton Grange Preparatory School’s 90-acre woodland site in the heart of Dunchurch, the new nursery is already almost full for the rest of the year.  

Welcoming babies from six months to children aged five, Little Grange has a team of 20 fully trained and dedicated staff. Rugby School Group was encouraged to invest in the nursery in the wake of the success and popularity of The Nest at Bilton Grange, the School’s early year’s provision for children aged from three, which opened in 2019 and is now at capacity. The pre-prep facility is going from strength to strength and was recently shortlisted for Pre-Prep School of the Year in the TES Independent School Awards.  

Nursery Manager, Anna Biddlestone, said she believes Little Grange will become the region’s nursery of choice where children will be surrounded by warm, enticing and magical environments providing outstanding teaching and learning opportunities for even the youngest of babies. 

“We can’t wait to meet all our children and parents and welcome them to Little Grange. The whole team is really excited to be embarking on this new adventure together,” she said. 

The Nursery is currently in luxury, temporary accommodation while a full refurbishment programme of existing buildings takes place with a bespoke equipment fit-out of all internal and external spaces. A grand opening of the new Little Grange Nursery building will take place in November. 

The next Little Grange Open Day will be on 12 November, 2022. Please see
