Making it Work With Parents

We deeply respect the role that parents play as the principal carer in their child’s life and we want to develop a close working relationship with you so that we are consistently meeting your family's needs. We find that open, two-way communication is the best way to handle this so we always make time to talk at the beginning and end of each day and you will receive information about your child's nursery day verbally, in writing or through photographs.

We share our observations of your children with you using an online learning journal called ‘Tapestry’ and you can see these anytime you choose and access our observations at home to share with your family.

All around the nursery you will see documentation of children’s experiences and evidence of their work. And we keep you to up to date with events at nursery through our parent newsletter.

We also have a regular Parent Forum which brings together a group of parents to meet with the senior nursery team and to explore how best to work together and to share ideas.

Inclusion for All Children

Our policy is to include all children whose parents request a place, wherever possible. We will be happy to discuss any arrangements we need to make in order to give the best to your child and we may often involve other sources of support too. Please see our ‘Local Offer’ page for more detail.
