Parents are the most important adults in a child’s life. Therefore, we encourage a partnership and close contact between them and the nursery staff. Our doors are open to parents at all times. Day to day matters requiring only a few words may be discussed at the beginning or at the end of the day. However, if a matter requires a more detailed discussion, parents are welcome to make an appointment with a member of staff.
We will provide opportunities for parents/carers to contribute their own skills, knowledge and interest to the activities of the setting.
Ensure all parents/carers are aware that they can discuss their child’s progress and development at any time.
We will involve parents/carers in the shared development record keeping about their child, either formally or informally and ensure they have access to their child’s written developmental records.
We request that parents who have children under the age of two supply a day diary in order for staff to share daily information with you.
We will inform parents/carers through newsletters and letters of all news and developments within the setting and ensure that parents are aware that they are welcome to contribute in any way they feel able.
We welcome suggestions and will actively seek parental views via parent questionnaires on a regular basis. Therefore ensuring that we are meeting the needs of both children and families.
We will listen to all suggestions and acknowledge that all children, parents and staff have the right to be consulted and be heard.
