At Sunny Days Montessori School our ethos and practice is to always strive to value diversity and promote equality.
Our aim is always to:
- select friendly, dependable, mature and professional staff through our rigorous recruitment and selection policy.
- ensure that the developmental, educational, emotional and social needs of each child are met daily.
- have the voice of the child in our care heard, respected and that they contribute to our programme.
- deliver a quality Montessori curriculum which addresses children’s well-being, identity and belonging, communication and exploring and thinking, along the principles of Aistear, the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework.
We also look to make sure that Sunny Days Montessori School is accessible to all members of the community, regardless of race, gender, family status, age, disability, or religious belief. We also aim to work with ‘Síolta’, The National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education, by following its 12 principles of quality and the 16 standards within its framework.
We operate within the Childcare (Pre-School Services) (No 2) Regulations 2006 and The National Standards for Pre-Schools, and we strive to ensure that the environment is planned and well-organised in a way that suits the different needs of individual children, while always keeping in mind the importance of Safety and Hygiene.
Parents are actively welcomed at Sunny Days at all times, and we endeavour to share information and communicate with parents directly, in order to give feedback at the end of each day and to ensure that they are made aware of on-going developments with their child, as well as any changes to policies and procedures.
