We want all children to feel safe and happy in an environment that is welcoming and stimulating. We believe that parents/carers are the child’s first and most important educators. Therefore, we want to ensure that a strong partnership between home and nursery is developed and maintained.
We know that in order to have the greatest benefits for the child there needs to be a positive relationship between nursery and parents and the key to this is good communication. Here at Walton Nursery & Early Years Centre we use a recording system called ‘Learning Books’. The key person will observe your child and plan through these observations. Parents will be given their own private login detail to access their child’s information and what they have been learning in Nursery. We ask parents to contribute to your child’s Learning Books as this will enable the keyperson to have a better understanding of your child’s interests at home, and introduce this in to nursery.
If there are any changes such as: phone numbers, home address etc., please let the nursery know as soon as possible. This information is extremely important in the event of an emergency.
