Working in partnership with parents...

Collaborative approach

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.

Key Person

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.

Relationship Confidence

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'

Key Person’s recognise the parent is the child’s first educator, it is the parent who will know their child best and we will work in partnership with the parent to ensure we have all current information needed to settle and build upon your child’s learning and development. The Key Person will effectively share information with parents in order for your child’s needs to be understood and therefore met.

Challenging learning opportunities...

A child’s time at nursery should be a memorable journey not just for them but for parents too. The Key Person will capture all of your child’s learning and talking about your child’s learning will often happen informally at the beginning or end of the day when you drop off or collect your child from nursery. Engaging in a conversation with your child’s Key Person can often produce useful information about new interests or experiences that can be used to plan exciting and challenging learning opportunities at nursery and further create activity ideas that can be shared with parents to do at home.

Our Parent Partnership Group is to encourage good communication between parents and the nurseries.

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.

We know how busy parents are...

…and it may not be possible to engage in a daily conversation with your child’s Key Person but we have ways to support a regular two way flow of communication such as Class Dojo, newsletters, texts and emails. Parents’ meetings take place regularly and provide opportunities for key persons to share observations, assessments and planning with parents and to be able to listen and respond to any thoughts or questions you may have.
