The staff at The Chilterns Montessori School aim to provide a secure, safe, happy, stimulating environment where all the children can purposefully and constructively learn and acquire knowledge through their natural interests.
We promote the Montessori philosophy through our emphasis on ample opportunity for practice and repetition of the use of self-correcting Montessori materials, combined with guidance by the teachers, based on observations of each child's needs.
Our objectives are to fulfil the necessary legislative criteria whilst retaining a peaceful and productive classroom atmosphere in which each child can realize his or her own potential at his or her own pace without fear of failure.
The nursery takes children from the age of 2 until school age and is open during term time from 9am to 3.30pm. We are regulated by Ofsted. Please feel free to read
. Children staying for lunch are asked to provide a packed lunch. Morning and afternoon snacks are provided and children are urged to choose what snack should be provided each day from a list displayed on the wall. We also provide milk and water.
Our staff are all experienced and most have NVQ3 and above qualifications. Most of our staff have been with the nursery for many years, including our manager, Mrs Fiona Russell who has a Montessori Teaching Diploma. We employ a dance teacher who visits the school each week and we also employ Wycombe Wanderers FC to teach football once a week for those that want it.
