Working in Partnership With Parents & Carers
Our aim is to provide a warm, friendly and safe environment that enables our children to actively engage and learn through play; and parents and carers plays a major part in this. We value parent opinion and actively encourage our families to come into setting and share in the life of preschool. We see our parents and carers as an asset and feel very lucky to have so much support and experience brought into preschool to enrich the children’s experiences as well as, often, the staff’s! So we thought we'd let some of our parents tell you what they think of us...
Many thanks to our parents for their kind words. We are a very strong team of staff who really enjoy the feeling of community we provide within our preschool. We all believe that every child has the right to the best quality learning practice and that, given these opportunities, each and every once can flourish.
We invite parents and carers to join us at preschool, whether to lend a hand with cookery, help with our fundraising activities or just to play with the children. It is important to us that our families feel welcomed and comfortable in our setting. We offer a lot of in-house activities and events including our Christmas Nativity, Mother’s Day Morning, Dad’s week and Sports day as well as public events such as our famous Egg Hunt and Christmas Craft Mornings and regular Tuesday morning Toddler stay and plays.
We know how hard it can sometimes be to get ready and out of the house in the morning and that many children get up very early. For some this means breakfast can be a distant memory by the time they come into preschool, so we offer breakfast every morning, as well as a healthy snack around half ten.
We will work with you with potty training and offer continual support in your child's development, so do come and ask if you need any help or would like some extra support. If we don't know the answer, we will certainly use all our contacts and resources to try to find you one. Our door is always (metaphorically) open!
Did you know that we run monthly coffee mornings on different days to give all of our parents and carers an opportunity to drop in for a cuppa and a chat? It’s a great way to meet people if you are new to the area, or just to see what we’ve got going on this month.
