Parental Involvement

The link between home and nursery is very important to us as it helps us to understand and therefore deliver each child and family’s individual requirements.

Parents are encouraged to be involved with nursery as much as possible. A personal portfolio is kept for each child and these are shared at parents evenings but are also available to parents at any time.

We use a system of continuous assessment, which clearly demonstrates the children’s progress in the various areas of learning. For the younger children, daily information sheets are completed to include relevant information on the child’s sleep, mealtimes, activities, topics etc. Staff at nursery work hard with parents to ensure quality care for your child and value regular communication and written information.

We produce termly newsletters (please see examples in our Newsletters section), keeping everyone informed of forthcoming events. Parent’s evenings are held twice a year as well as Christmas Parties, the Nativity Play and many other celebrations and trips, all of which enable parents to become involved as much as they would like.

At nursery we are always willing to listen to any improvements that can be made, with this in mind we operate a suggestion box which is situated in the nursery hallway.
