Parent Partnership

We believe that parents are a child’s first and most enduring educator, therefore parent partnership is at the heart of all that we do. As the expert about their child we actively seek their perspective in order to help plan meaningful learning experiences at home and at Nursery.

Parents are welcome in the Nursery at any time to come and join in and share their expertise with us. We also welcome parents to come to the Forest with us on Mondays and share in building dens and making fires.

Parents are welcome to talk with their key person at any time and we also have regular meetings with parents as an opportunity to talk about their child’s learning and development.

We consult with parents regularly through our parents’ voice weeks. Parents’ feedback helps us to improve the quality of all of our services and their ideas inform our plans for the future.

If parents are ever concerned or worried about anything or have any issues they would like to discuss, they can always talk with their key person, Jackie the head teacher or a member of the family support team.

We aim to provide a combination of services which build confidence and trust and that reflect parents’ stated interests. We provide a family support programme run by professionals with high levels of inter-personal skills and empathy as well as the appropriate qualifications, in the following ways:

We regularly monitor and evaluate all our family support services in order to understand what parents in the local community want and provide the best services.
