Our team of highly dedicated staff provide all children with individual care, attention and stimulating activities and experiences, to nurture and support their learning and development.
Christchurch Montessori has a large number of staff, most of which work on a full time basis. This enables us to upkeep our high level of teaching and for the children to form a secure attachment to their key person. Our staff to child ratios are:
1:3 for children aged 0-2, 1:4 for children aged 2-3 and 1:8 / 1:6 for children aged 3 years and up, this enables us to upkeep our high level of teaching.
All staff members hold current DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) checks before starting to work for us, complete with work related and character references.
Our staff are highly qualified with a wealth of experience and each bring both personal and professional knowledge to the setting. We also support our staff to onward train and to update their qualifications.
