The nursery is opened from 7.30 am - 6.00 pm weekdays (except bank holidays). We cater for children aged 0 - 4 years in our purpose built nursery setting.

Behaviour Management

The policy on discipline at Pocklington Montessori Nursery is based on the belief that a child is intrinsically 'good'. All staff should feel an equal responsibility for discipline bearing in mind that very young children are egocentric and generally do not mean harm. The Class Teachers are responsible for behaviour management issues. Self respect, respect for others and respect for the environment all develop self-discipline.We aim for harmony and believe this fits comfortably alongside our promotion and celebration of British Values.

The setting aims to promote good behaviour through a culture of mutual respect.  Staff are committed to excellence, aiming to achieve a spirit of trust and cooperation. We promote positive behaviour. We see nursery education as a partnership between ourselves and parents and expect all parents to fully support our school policies.  

We expect the highest values and standards of behaviour inside and outside the classroom, as well as nursery trips.  

Where specific problems are identified we will work with the parents, child and outside agencies to ensure the child’s specific needs are being met.
