Your Child’s Key Person

Your child will be allocated a key person when they start at Flying Start. This person will help you and your child settle into the routines ensuring that you both feel safe and  secure at this crucial time of separation.

Child’s Progress

It is very important that we work together to support your child’s learning experience.We individually plan for your child on a termly basis and use this information to construct an ongoing learning journey using our new record keeping system within the pre-school called ‘My Montessori Child’.
This system is securely run using ipads to record visual evidence and observational records of your child’s progress and achievements whilst they are with us at pre-school. The system allows us to plan individually for your child and produce a clear visual record of the activities which have captured their interest.As a parent, you can log in to the system with a unique log in code, to view pictures and observations which have been recorded for your child. The system includes a ‘parent’s page’ which will keep you up to date with the pre-school news and Montessori updates.

Please see the following website for further details http://www.mymontessorichild.com/parents. We hold informal parent meetings with you upon your request and a parent/teacher consultation during the Spring Term.

Partnership with parents

We have an open door policy and welcome you at anytime to share in our pre-school day.  We hold coffee mornings, mini concerts, fun days and school trips for you to share in your child’s experience.  We provide regular weekly updates on preschool activities through My Montessori Child and send out regular emails to keep you up to date with important information.
