Partnership with Parents
You, as parents are the prime educators of your child in their earliest years therefore we welcome and encourage parent’s involvement in the nursery. We have an ‘open door’ policy in place therefore a member of staff is always available to listen to your comments and suggestions.
Effective communication between parents and nursery staff is important to provide the best possible care for your child.
We would appreciate if you could inform nursery staff of any circumstances, either temporary or permanent which may affect your child’s emotional or physical well being to ensure your child receives additional support if necessary. A member of staff will be available to speak to you on a daily basis to discuss your child’s progress and answer any questions you may have.
You will be kept informed of nursery events and activities through our notice board in the entrance hall, newsletters and via our website. In your child’s playroom you will also find notice boards giving information on the day’s activities.
Clothing and Personal Property
Your child will be involved in messy activities at nursery and although the staff will encourage them to wear aprons whenever possible, we would advise that your child does not wear ‘good’ clothes to nursery as accidents can happen. It is helpful if you mark all your child’s belongings with their name as it can be difficult for our nursery staff to locate unnamed items.
We would also recommend that your child does not bring toys from home as they do become upset if items become mislaid or broken. Favourite books and comfort toys are of course always welcome.
Parents Evenings are held each year for all children. Although the nursery staff are available to speak to you on a daily basis, this gives you the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress in a relaxed atmosphere.
