Montessori, CFE and GIRFEC
Netherton Montessori Nursery School is a partner provider nursery with Perth and Kinross Council. We work very closely with the council to make sure that our Montessori principles and practices fit in with Curriculum For Excellence Experiences and Outcomes. The 'I can" philosophy of CFE fits extremely well with Montessori because both are child-centred and value independence and autonomy. Getting it right for each child (GIRFEC) lies at the heart of the Montessori Ethos. Treating each child as unique, allowing him or her the freedom to develop, knowing when and how to create a safe nurturing environment underpins the relationships fostered between the teachers, children and their environment.
In response to requests we are in the process of extending our day to be open from 8am-6pm. We are also looking at having a toddlers group as Montessori Method is invaluable as soon as a child starts to become aware of their surroundings and wants to interact with them.
Aims and Objectives
As a partner provider nursery we follow the equal opportunities policies of Perth and Kinross and the SQA. We are a very open, relaxed and happy school and children bring a wide variety of experiences, knowledge and culture to the school. We are a rich and diverse mix and our small size means that individual character has plenty room to grow and be nurtured.
We value parents' input and regard ourselves as being in partnership with you, the parents. We like to hear from you and keep up with family news and changes which might impact on your child. We offer expert guidance and support to our parents and share the knowledge and understanding we have of your children. We talk to you about your children and work together to get over difficulties and help make your job of parenting easier.
