We understand that a child’s family are the first and most influential people in their life. At nursery, we view our role in the care of your child as a partnership with parents. To maintain our high standard of childcare, we place a high value on making time for you to be able to talk to staff, to discuss the development of your child while helping us to understand their individual traits and needs.
In addition to these daily opportunities to talk with staff, we hold various events during the year - including parents' evenings and social family events. We welcome involvement and suggestions from parents, who are always welcome to have a chat with the friendly management team.
We like to build a relationship with you where information flows in both directions. We will always tell you about your child's day and how they are progressing. At the same time, we are keen to hear about your child's development at home, so that we can better care for them at nursery.
Our team are experienced and are always on hand to discuss any issues that you might be having with your child at home.
Your child will be allocated a key person, who will be your main point of contact within the nursery. They track their child's progress in nursery and plan activities to support their development.
Your child's key person will also have a buddy – another member of staff within the room who is able to support the key person and step in for them if the key person is away. This means that there is always someone in the room who knows your child's progress and interests.
We also use the Famly online app to share information with you about your child. Accessed on your phone, tablet or computer, you will have your own secure login to access updates about your child.
The app will provide real time updates about what your child is doing, such as what they have eaten or whether they have slept. Photos are also uploaded so that you can see some of the activities your child has enjoyed.
Your secure account is password protected and you have control over who can access the information.
