Parents as partners

We recognise that parents are a child’s prime educator and when your child starts nursery school an important partnership begins between nursery and home. It is important to establish two-way communication links if the partnership is to be a successful one. Regular opportunities for us to pass on information or have your questions answered will be made available throughout the year at Open Evenings and Parent Workshops.

Your child’s progress will be continually observed and assessed. Samples of your child’s work along with these observations and photographs are kept in their Learning Journey. You are invited to contribute to this file when your child begins nursery and also welcome to see it at any mutually convenient time. When your child moves to primary school the file is yours to keep as a record of their early development and achievements.
