A child’s first educator is their parent/carer and in order to give our children the best possible start we feel it is essential that we work in partnership with our parents. The partnership that we have with our parents is invaluable and we work extremely hard to build trust and open communication.
We encourage our parents to be involved in their child’s care and education and parents are welcomed to attend any session that their child is attending. As a parent you may also wish to join in with one of our activities or outings.
Daily Record Sheets
The Nursery will use ‘daily record sheets’ to inform you of your child’s day. The Record Sheet will provide you with information such as: food and drink consumed, nappy changes, activities and play carried out, temperament etc.
The Nursery hold three parent evenings a year. This is a time for parents to come into the nursery and celebrate achievements with key workers from both nursery and at home.
You will have an opportunity to look through your child’s learning journey and work together with the key worker to think about next steps for your child’s learning.
This is also a great opportunity to show you some of your child’s work. If you would like to discuss your child’s progress you do not have to wait until the next parents evening just simply give us a call and we will arrange an appointment with you.
We recognise that all of our parents are talented and this is your opportunity to shine! If you have a skill that you could teach our children then come and share it. Whether it’s creative, culinary or banging bongos you maybe just what we need.
There are opportunities to volunteer within the Nursery and other areas of our centre. Please click on link below for more information:
Would you like to become more involved in the decision making of the nursery? Would you like to meet other parents? Then the parents’ panel may be for you! The group is a team of parents that work in partnership with the nursery manager and staff to continually strive to improve the service. As a parent you know what you want your nursery to provide for you children so come along and join!
The feedback that we receive from our parents plays an important role in the evaluation of our service to our families. In order to improve the service we provide we need comments from you.
