At Nursery we recognise the importance of parent’s involvement in their child’s development, we, therefore, encourage parents to take an active role in their child’s learning.

By working in true partnership with parents we aim to provide a stimulating, challenging environment which is a warm, friendly extension of home, where children and adults can explore, have fun, play, talk and learn together, developing as happy, confident and independent individuals within their community

Inspires – we invite parents and carers to Inspire sessions within the Nursery provision throughout the year. These sessions allow parents and carers to see their child’s learning and ‘stay and play’ with their child. It also allows adults the opportunity to communicate with the Nursery team about their child’s learning.

When your child starts:

We discuss with you when your child will start and how long they will attend each session. We listen carefully to your views and the needs of your child. We are very flexible with our start dates and times. All children are different – some may settle in very quickly, whilst others need a little more time.

We also acknowledge this separation can be as upsetting for parents as it is for children and so we offer comfort and patience to all during this transition time. Time spent on settling in is time well invested for the children’s security and confidence.

It is really important that children are collected on time, as searching the sea of faces for your mum or dad, nana or grandad, and finding no-one there can be really upsetting for the children. We ask that parents inform us of the people who are most likely to collect their child.
