Our Partnership with Parents

We encourage parents to be involved in every aspect of their child’s care from the 1st day in the nursery until the day they leave for school.

Even before they start we will work closely with parents to ensure that every relevant detail about the child is recorded – from medical issues to dietary requirements and all points in between.

A Settling-in period will be organised so that both child & parent gets used to the new routines and relationships with our staff are formed.

We regularly provide detailed information on your child’s progress and hold parent’s evenings twice a year when we can discuss all aspects of your child’s care and education.

    Policies and Procedures   


We are committed to providing learning, development & care for all children in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. This will be delivered under four main themes:

A Unique Child
We recognise that every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. Our commitments are focused around development; inclusion; safety; health & well being.

Positive Relationships
We believe that children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or a key person. Our commitments are focused around respect; partnership with parents; supporting learning, role of the key person.

Enabling Environments
We believe that the environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children's development and learning. Our commitments are focused around observation; assessment and planning; support for every child; the learning environment; the wider context – transitions, continuity and multi-agency working.

Learning and Development
We recognise that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates and all areas of Learning and Development are equally important and inter-connected.

Our overarching aim is to improve outcomes and reflects that it is every child’s right to grow up safe; healthy; enjoying & achieving; making a positive contribution and with economic well-being.
