Working in partnership with parents...
Working in partnership with parents is paramount to children’s learning and development, we pride ourself on the collaborative approach between parent and Nursery to support the child’s learning and development.
Each child will be allocated a member of staff known to the parent and child as your child’s ‘Key Person’ they will have knowledge and understanding on how children learn and develop and will have the unique understanding of what your child’s currents interests and needs are.
The relationship between the ‘Key Person’, child and parent will begin on day one of your child attending the setting. In order to build an attachment between your child and the Key Person it is important your child recognises your acceptance of the Key Person which will lead your child into having secure confidence with their relationship with the Key Person.
The Role of the 'Key Person'

Our Parent Partnership Group is to encourage good communication between parents and the nurseries. For example discussing changes to policies and ways in which our service to parents and children can be enhanced. Members of the partnership group also act as a support to other parents who would benefit from their reassurance when their child starts at the nursery. If you would like more information, please speak to a member of staff.
