Parent Infomation

We recognise that a child’s family is their first educator, therefore we feel by working as equal partners, together we can support each individual child in reaching their full potential. By working together and establishing good lines of communication we aim to establish and meet the individual child’s needs.

We work in partnership with other agencies and services for the benefit of all our children and their families. We aim to ensure a smooth transition for each individual child from:

  • Home to nursery
  • Room to room
  • Nursery to school

Communication with Mothers, Fathers and Carers

To ensure that the individual needs of all babies and young children in our care are met, we feel that liaising with mothers/fathers/carers on a day to day basis is important. You will personally be informed about your child’s day at Nursery by a practitioner who has been actively involved in providing the care of your child.


Tapestry

We use online learning journal Tapestry, to communicate your child’s activities and daily progress (available via both an app and a website), supporting their development here in the nursery setting and with you at home. Information provided includes:

  • Sleep times
  • Meal times
  • Nappy changes
  • Activities and Experiences
  • Any other information important to parents/carers

We feel that all mothers/fathers/carers need to be given as much accurate information as possible about their child’s day at Nursery and we encourage you to share information with us related to your child’s interests, learning and experiences outside of Nursery.
