Key person and Partnership with Parents

We pride ourselves on our relationships with parents/carers, which helps your child to settle and thrive. We place significant importance on the key person role and involve you in your child’s care at every step of the way from your child’s first settling in session to their transition day!

To support this relationship we encourage a two way process of communication regarding your child’s learning and development at home and in the nursery setting.
