Hillcrest Montessori Nursery School provides a caring and secure atmosphere with a calm, structured and stimulating environment for learning.
At Hillcrest Montessori Nursery School the ethos of the school is
‘commitment to caring’.
Children are encouraged to care for themselves, each other, their community and their environment.
PARTNERSHIP WITH PARENTS
We respect and support parents as the primary educators of their child. Staff are available to discuss the progress of your child on a daily basis, and to offer ideas and guidance when requested. Written policies covering all aspects of the school are available upon request, for parents to read. These include policies on special educational needs, behaviour management, the complaints procedure, child protection policy, non-collection of child policy and parents are referred to the ‘Guidance on infection control in schools and nurseries’ poster which is prominently displayed. Our ‘settling-in’ procedure is discussed during the visit. Close co-operation between school life and home life is of vital importance and encourages an understanding and caring atmosphere for the children. We welcome parental involvement in school activities as well as sharing any helpful suggestions or ideas that you feel may benefit the children. There is a strong partnership between the nursery and parents which has a beneficial effect on the children’s learning.
