Parental Involvement

 

Parents are children’s first and most enduring educators. We aim to develop a successful and effective partnership with parents. As a community based, voluntary managed setting, we depend on the good will and involvement of parents/carers to keep us running. As a registered charity we have a lot of fundraising events throughout the year, which you can take part in. your help is greatly appreciated and any money we raise will be used to buy new resources and equipment for your children.

All our staff are committed to being partners with parents and this is achieved by mutual respect and exchanging knowledge about your children’s needs activities, interests, and progress. We understand that when your child starts pre-school its often a new and confusing experience, therefore we try to provide as much information as possible to you to ensure that you know what your child is doing as well as what is happening in the pre-school as a whole. A newsletter is circulated every half a term informing of future events and topics the children will be exploring. We have a notice board outside pre-school giving information on events, topics and anything related to pre-school, please check it regularly! We also have parents evening every term where you can come along and meet with your child’s keyworker. Pre-school also has an open door policy where you are welcome any time to come and talk to a member of staff, to see what we have been working on, or to just check your child is settled. Our intention is to work in partnership with children and their parents/carers and we welcome suggestions at any time. We have an ‘Ideas Box’ situated inside pre-school so please feel free to use it for any ideas on what you think your child would enjoy or any suggestions you have.

 

 Comments from our parents

November 19

My daughter loves it at pre-school – she doesn`t want to leave when I collect her and asks to go at the weekends! Thank you for taking such great care of her!

My child has never been rushed to settle in – staff have spent so much time helping her to build friendships when it felt right. They completely understand the anxieties it has on a parent when their child starts pre-school, and I know my child feels safe and comfortable with staff.

I couldn`t fault my child`s pre-school in any way – she always wants to go and always comes out happy!

Every member of staff makes me and my child feel welcome which makes it easier when you trust them.
