We recognise that parents/carers are the first and most important educators of their children. Our staff see themselves as partners with families in providing care and education for their children.
We believe that strong parent partnerships rely on ongoing open communication. To achieve this, we schedule regular catch-ups, circulate a weekly newsletter and host regular events such as Mother’s Day breakfasts and reading with children on World Book Day.
For a partnership to work well, it must be built on trust, transparency and responsibility from all parties involved. We achieve this by encouraging our families to:
- Exchanging knowledge about their children’s needs, activities, interests and progress with the staff
- Volunteer to help-out with pre-school sessions
- Share their own, interests, cultural celebrations, and jobs with the children
- Take part in events
- Building friendships with other parents/carers
- Joining in community activities.
