Parents as partners
We really value close partnerships with our parents; after all, you are the expert when it comes to your child! We spend a lot of time developing positive relationships with all of our parents, to help us share as much information as possible.
We run parent’s evenings twice a year, and we encourage you to take this time to meet your child’s Key Person, talk to them about their progress, celebrate achievements, set learning and development goals, and discuss any concerns you may have.
Each child has a secure online Learning Journal, where we record your child’s progress, interests and achievements through photographs, videos and observations. Parents often tell us how much they value these insights into what their little ones get up to, and especially love photos of the child enjoying activities and witnessing first hand through the photographs and videos how much their child is enjoying their day. We love nothing more than when parents comment on what the children have been doing and upload their own photos and videos too. This enables us to share special times such as birthdays, Christmas or simply a walk to the park or feeding the ducks so we can build upon this in Nursery. We regularly share these photos and videos with the children too, to help them celebrate their achievements by looking at and talking about what they’ve done.
Naturally we give feedback at the end of each session, and we encourage parents to share their children’s latest interests, special moments and any new information that will help us get to know and understand your child better.
We have an open door policy, so you are always welcome to meet us and talk through any concerns or suggestions.
