A highlight of the report is when the Inspector says:
"The quality of education is outstanding. The dedicated staff team provide a stimulating and vibrant learning environment where children of different ages and abilities are exceptionally
eager to explore, investigate and learn through play."
The Centre is a limited company and a registered charity; it is run as a non-profit making enterprise, and we are a self-supporting organisation. The primary source of income is fees, and the Centre depends on the co-operation of parents, particularly regarding prompt payment of fees, for its administrative efficiency and economic viability.
The Centre also runs fundraising events during the year, such as a Christmas raffle, Second-Hand Book Sale and so forth. We greatly appreciate parents’ support of these events, as all funds raised are used to provide equipment and toys for the children. In recent years donations from parents have enabled us to build an outdoor classroom in our playground.
It is compulsory for children to wear nursery uniform. We require the children to wear the school t-shirt or sweatshirt, along with easy bottoms such as tracksuit bottoms or leggings. Please visit https://www.yourschooluniform.com/schools/index/blackheath-montessori-centre-1884 to make a purchase.
