Sport

Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support to fulfil their potential.

Painting

Painting gives a child the ability to share their equipment, to clean up their mess, and more.

Toys

Toys are for fun, but they also can play a positive role in a child's education.

Books

Reading is a habit that can be easily inculcated in children very early on.

Our Nursery is open to all members of the community. We aim to provide a fair system which allows all children an equal opportunity of entrance to the Nursery. Children are free to enter Nursery at any age from zero months.

Deacons Academy Montessori Nursery provides a nurturing and stimulating environment to progress each child's individual development, taking them from infancy right through to preparing them for their first days at school.

The Nursery is located in the Dome Pillar 2 area, Accra and has it's own private garden for outdoor play, with a number of beautiful parks and woods close by. It offers morning, afternoon and full day sessions, Monday to Friday (a minimum of four sessions a week).

Safety

We know that when you entrust your child to our care, it is our duty to look after them as well as you would. We've taken every

CCTV

measure to ensure your child's safety during the time at nursery.


We ask for file photos of any person wishing to be permitted to collect a child, and photo identification will be requested before a child can be signed out of the nursery.These days everyone is acutely aware of the dangers posed by strangers, so we have CCTV cameras monitoring the exterior of the building, and through the use of an electronic access system no unauthorised access to the building is possible.

Inside the nursery, we eliminate the risk of accidents through a huge number of safety measures, some obvious, some less so. Children are also closely supervised at all times to make sure they are kept safe.

Any accidents that do occur are recorded and reported to parents promptly.

In the baby rooms we maintain extremely high adult to child ratios, up to one-to-one care for the youngest children. Sleeping babies are checked at least every 10 minutes, and their environment is monitored for maximum comfort.
