At Little Adventurers we recognise that as parents you are the expert on your child, so we want to do everything we can to work closely with you to ensure your child’s needs are met.
When you visit you will want to ask lots of questions so that you feel secure with the people who are being left to care for your child. We will ask you to tell us all about your child- their routines, their likes and dislikes, their favourite toys – anything that helps us to know and support them better.
We ask you to visit at least twice to familiarise your child with the nursery. This will be time for you and your child to get to know their new key person and to see what we do. When they start with us we encourage you to leave a familiar toy or comforter from home to help them settle and will keep you informed of their time with us.
Because evidence shows that the involvement of parents in their children’s learning results in longer-term benefits for the child and parent we want to involve you and keep you informed in all we do. We do this in a variety of ways including:
- Informal verbal feedback after each session
- Communication emails
- An on-line learning journal of photos, pictures & observations
- Regular progress reviews
- Regular Parents Forum Meetings
- Nursery Community Days for the whole family
- Nursery Facebook Page
- Closed Facebook Forum for Parents
- Parents Meals out
- Parent First Aid Courses
- Parent Workshops
- Regular monthly newsletters
Building strong relationships with parents is very important to us and we have an open door policy. It is central to our ethos at Little Adventurers that your child’s individual needs and emotional wellbeing are being looked after in the best possible way and with the highest quality of care so we welcome your input and suggestions throughout their time with us.
