We currently admit children to Mars Montessori from the day they turn 18 months up until they are 4 (of course you can join anywhere in between if places are available). Compulsory school age is currently the term after a child’s fifth birthday.
We only have 25 children at the nursery at any one time – which makes for a very friendly atmosphere. Our staff know each child very well and can provide very individualised care.
We employ a well trained and dedicated staff team. We have qualified Montessori teachers as well as at least one member of our team having an alternative qualification in childcare. This helps to ensure variety within the nursery and ensures that the needs of our little children are carefully monitored, nurtured and supported throughout their day at school. Several teachers are themselves parents and we understand that often children of 1 & 2 years of age require different care and activities, as well as sleep, cuddles and nappy changes.
The nursery has a Nursery Manager, who takes care of all the business needs and day to day running of the school. She is available to parents throughout the whole school day.
We have lots of lovely Montessori materials in our classrooms. Our classes are bright and vibrant and reflect the children’s own work in many lovely creative displays.
We are members of the National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA). NDNA seeks to develop, encourage and maintain high standards in education and care for the benefit of children.
We are Montessori accredited.
