Information For Parents

We understand that parents and carers are children’s most important and enduring educators so we put a lot of time and effort into developing close relationships.. Every child has a Key Person who will usually be the member of staff parents and carers will have most contact with.

We ask parents and carers, or a familiar adult such as a grandparent, to stay with each child for their first session or two, even if the child has been used to attending another setting. This allows  the Key Person to get to know the child and family a little better and our experience shows that this helps children to settle quickly. The Key Person will arrange to visit the child at home.

We also ask parents and carers to complete an Admission Form which includes ssential information such as telephone numbers , and with the child an “I am special” booklet, at this point we also need to know if there are any medical issues or allergies we need to be aware of . It also helps us to know about children’s wider family circumstances, their culture, likes, dislikes, and pets.

Some children settle in very quickly, others take longer and we sometimes suggest shorter sessions for the first few days or weeks. We understand parents’ anxieties during these early days.

We regularly have opportunities for parents to join in with children’s activities - either through coming on walks and visits in the local  community, coming in to help in sessions or joining in workshops or “special events”. We welcome Parents to join our Eco Schools group.
