Montessori Re-Accreditation at St Nicholas Prep
We are proud to announce that the Early Years at St Nicholas Preparatory School has been awarded Re-Accreditation by the Montessori Evaluation and Accreditation Board. This is a huge success within our setting and an achievement we are deeply proud of. Accreditation is awarded to schools that demonstrate high quality Montessori provision, through trusting and respecting each child’s needs and individual characteristics towards learning. The feedback given highlighted our commitment to this, through carefully prepared environments that support each individual child. The rich curriculum and attention towards outdoor learning we provide within our Early Years was also celebrated. We have worked hard over the last year to implement changes that were praised during the Re-Accreditation visit. Most specifically, in the area of recording and tracking children as they progress, to ensure that they are catered for accordingly every step of the way.
“The level of engagement is high as teachers guide activity, sensitively using planning to promote progress and development. The Child Profiles are a joy and reflect not only the child’s ability but also their individual personality and voice.”
Another key factor towards meeting the criteria towards gaining this award, is the focus on effective links with parents. We hope that through achieving the Re-Accreditation, it reflects further our commitment towards your children’s development and well-being and building strong and trusting relationships with our parents.
