Key Person

At The Garden Montessori, in line with the EYFS guiding theme of “Positive Relationships” each child has a two key person (teacher), who works in partnership with the parents/carers to make sure that their child is settled, observes them, introduces them to new activities, plans and keeps records up to date in their Learning Journey.
