Before being formally admitted to the kindergarten or school, you will be asked to complete an application form, available below or via the school office.
Your child may have a trial day, and the parents then take part in an interview with the appropriate teacher. We aim to provide a clear understanding of what we offer at Nant-y-Cwm, and form a sense of our ability to meet your childʼs needs. We hope to be able to answer any questions you may still have, and also to discuss the financial and time contributions from families that we need to
run and maintain our lovely school.
The appropriate class teacher will meet with you and your child to gain a picture of your child. This will be followed by a trial of 1 – 5 days. Once it has been established that we can provide an education for your child, our administration staff will arrange to meet with you to discuss the financial and time contributions required from families that we need to run and maintain our lovely school.
The school itself takes children from age 6 or 7 to age 14, in classes numbered 1 to 8. Because we are a small school we operate a doubled-class system; thus in one year we will have classes 1/2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8 and the following year we will have classes 1, 2/3, 4/5, 6/7, 8. Our experience has shown that there are numerous benefits in this system. Younger children may look up to older role-models, while the older group learns to take the responsibility of providing an example for the younger ones.
