September 2016: The New Nursery
St Christopher’s School has a new Nursery in a self contained EYFS area of the school. Mrs Minisha Bist, our Nursery manager has a clear vision of what she wants to achieve. Although trained in Montessori teaching, Mrs Bist wants to also develop basic skills through structured activities, including phonetic awareness and a confidence with numbers.
"It's an honour to be the Nursery manager at St Christopher’s Nursery and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself - I graduated from the University of Westminster with a Ba/BSc in 2003 and followed this up with an international teaching diploma in Montessori and Early Years studies from MCI London. I have close to 10 years of teaching experience in both mainstream schools and the Montessori environment. As a nursery manager, in both my previous school and here at St Christopher’s, I love working with my team of inspiring teachers to ensure each child has their individual needs and strengths met. I aim to do this by providing them with a loving and creative environment that helps them progress as far as they can.
Also working alongside me is our senior nursery teacher, Mrs Neelam, who has immense knowledge and experience in the nursery sector. She has 9 years of experience and is Level 3 qualified and Level 4 qualified in Leadership and Management. She brings all this to out nursery and can give your child the very best care and tutelage.
It's a real privilege to be part of the St Christopher’s team where each child is viewed as an individual with unlimited potential. This mirrors my own deep passion about the role of Early years education in creating a solid foundation that will go on to help transform your little ones into dynamic leaders of tomorrow - ready to make their own special mark on the world!
I look forward to getting to know all of you and your children."
