Partnership With Parents

We regard partnerships with parents / carers to be of the utmost importance to the care and education of their children.

We appreciate having as much information as possible about each child so that we can make this new experience at the Montessori school happy and enjoyable for all concerned.

We have an open door policy to welcome parents / carers to spend time with their child or to speak to the Directress, Deputy Head, or Head Teacher about any issues.

Every day information and reminders will be displayed on a notice board and on our website, and we aim to provide constant communication between the School and the parents / carers.

For children attending the Montessori Community School there will be Open Days / Evenings when parents / carers can have the opportunity to speak to staff about their child’s development and progress in a more relaxed atmosphere. Each term parents will also have an opportunity for a personal confidential conference with their child’s Directress / Head Teacher. Regular newsletters will keep you up to date with what is happening.
