Parent Handbook

Alma Montessori Childcare aims to promote a caring environment in which children can flourish, physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually. We hope that this handbook will be a useful guide to help you settle your child into our setting and act as reference document for the future.

Our policies undergo regular review and are subject to change. Please check them at regular intervals for any updates.

If there is a policy you feel has not been addressed in this section and you would like to know more, please get in touch.
