We wholeheartedly understand and support the importance of your role in your child’s academic and emotional development. This is why we encourage parental involvement throughout your child’s time with us, through a variety of different ways. They include home observations, parent-led activities, parent workshops and much more.
Home Visits, Observations and Learning
In our nurseries we aim to create a warm, safe and welcoming environment where children settle quickly and easily. With this, we are able to create strong attachments which are critical to ensuring continuity of care from home to the setting.
One of our methods of ensuring a smooth transition from home to the nursery is our home visits. The child has the opportunity to meet his/her key person in their primary safe /secure environment which is their home. The key person learns more about what the child likes to do at home as well as what favourite toys are, or places and what is the family’s approach in behaviour management. Parents and children feel relaxed at their home and they are able to share valid information about their child to the key person.
Annual Parents Meetings
Once per year our nursery managers hold an official meeting with the parents from all the classrooms to discuss different variety of subjects. The meetings are very important as you will get the chance to have an input on the nurseries operations and curriculum. Your ideas and input will be taken seriously and an action plan is formulated as a result, to implement any recommended changes.
Child Development Meetings
Every four months, parents are required to do their child’s development report with the key person. This report is very important as we assess the child and discuss how we can develop the child further in the different areas of learning. Parents get an official written report which they can use in the school or with other professionals.
