Partnership with Parents 

Our setting recognises parents as the first and most important educators of their children. All of the staff see themselves as partners with parents in providing care and education for their children. There are many ways in which parents take part in making the setting a welcoming and stimulating place for children and parents, such as:
  • exchanging knowledge about their childs needs, activities, interests and progress with the staff;
  • contributing to the progress check at age two;
  • sharing their own special interests with the children;
  • taking part in events and informal discussions about the activities and curriculum provided by the setting;
  • joining in community activities, in which the setting takes part; and
  • Building friendships with other parents in the setting.
parents and staff have daily chats when they drop and pick the child up from nursery, a paent noticeboard is displayed outside and in reception area. 
We also have a Suggestion Box which we ask parents from time to time to write a brief comment, compliment, suggestion and post in to the box so that we are aware of anything that they feel needs addressing. This can be done anonymously.

parents meeting is arranged twice a year, this gives parents to come into nursery and discuss their child's progress and also be able to read the observation and assessment in their learning journey that was carried out throughout their time in nursery. 

we also organise parent workshop where parents are able to come into nursery and join in with activites with their child.
