Squirrels Montessori School believes that every child deserves the best possible start in life and support to gain their full potential. A child’s experience in the early years has a major impact on their future life. We are supporting the development by nurturing our future leaders of the world. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important, and it provides the foundation for children to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.
Squirrels aims to provide a welcoming, friendly and caring atmosphere to help children become settled and confident during their time here. We pride ourselves on building long and lasting relationships with all our parents and carers. Fundamentally we believe that robust and strong relationships from the setting and to home are paramount to children’s learning, development and well-being.
Communication is the most upmost importance to developing your child’s learning that is why we have an online learning journey system that effectively share experiences from home to the setting.
Each child will be allocated a passionate and enthusiastic early years educator to tune into your child’s interests and help them develop. The educator will be introduced to you as ‘your child’s key person’. They will have knowledge and understanding on how your child learns and develops. Furthermore, they will have a unique understanding of what your child’s interests and needs are.
Our partnership with you is extended to giving you ideas, advice and suggestions for activities to try at home.
We are extremely privileged at Squirrels because we see children develop and reach their milestones every day. It is extremely important to share these precious memories and wow moments with you when they happen too. That’s why we use the ‘Tapestry’ app.
Tapestry is an online learning journal which is hosted on secure dedicated servers based in the UK. We believe that it is much more than just an online learning journal; it’s a system that keeps you up to date in real time. Tapestry helps educators and parents to record, track and celebrate children's progress in early years education.
As your child achieves each milestone, the app alerts you, enabling you to see what your child is doing. From messy play and first steps to learning phonics and new games, there's so much for children to do, learn and take in.
