When you think back to your own schooling, your memories are of one teacher in one classroom for the whole year with the same group of kids. You either got along with that teacher or you didn’t which determined if your year was a long one or an enjoyable one.
The teachers that you recall were ones that you had a great relationship with and that made learning fun.
At Nichols Point relationships are key! They are vital in creating a learning environment that is safe and secure for kids. ‘Kids First’ is the motto we live by here at The Point and it underpins everything that we do. Every decision that is made has kids at the forefront.
