'The secret of good teaching is to regard the child's intelligence as a fertile filed in which seeds may be sown, to grow under the heat of flaming imagination'

OUR SETTING

Chapel Grange Montessori Nursery first opened its doors in October 1996 in Wilmslow, Cheshire.  The principles of our school are based on the philosophies of Dr Maria Montessori. Our aim is to assist the natural development of your child and to prepare him/her for later life. Your child is treated with respect in a warm, affectionate and non-competitive atmosphere. They will be given freedom to explore and interact within a carefully structured environment, guided by our qualified staff towards activities appropriate to their own stage of development.

 

Parent partnership is vital to the happy atmosphere we are renowned for here, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive nursery where we consider all children and their families needs. We have become involved in the PEAL (Parents, Early Years and Learning) project which ensures we are continually striving towards working to involve parents in their children's learning. The importance of supporting parental involvement in their children's learning is recognised and firmly embedded in the early years. For more information go to http://www.peal.org.uk/.

 

We enjoy relaxed yet professional relationships between staff and parents and our regular events where parents are encouraged to participate are an important part of CGM. When your child starts with us you will be introduced to their key worker and during settling sessions are given the opportunity to share information about your child, ensuring a smooth a transition into the nursery as possible. This special relationship between your child and their key worker will flourish during their time with us and enable you to rest assured that your child will be receiving the individual care and attention they deserve.

We see the benefits of activities such as music and movement, gym and foreign language classes for our pre-school children. The children benefit from having specialised teachers coming into the setting, they learn to listen and respond to different adults whilst having the support of their key workers. See the individual nurseries for activities provided.

 

We enjoy the challenge of being a nursery setting that is constantly seeking ways of improving our service to you and your family. Through staff development and training we ensure we are providing the best in childcare and education. As an employer we seek to empower and assist our staff in achieving further qualifications, we require hard working and dedicated professionals who want to achieve their absolute best to enable them to provide the best care for your child. Research from the Effective Provision of Pre-School Education project (EPPE) proves the long-held assumption that higher qualified staff do provide better quality care, our aim is to have staff who chose and are supported by us to undertake ongoing professional development.
