Links with parents
To provide the best for your children, we need to work in partnership with you. We can achieve this through a number of ways:
Making use of your skills and gifts
We are always keen for you to play an active part in the Pre-school and to put your talents to use within sessions. Please let the Pre-school Leader know what you would like to do, perhaps help within a session, bake cakes, fundraise or accompany us on an outing etc. Your support contributes greatly to the shared life of the Pre-school and builds great practical links with the staff team. For example, parents in the past have run a weekly music session, an exercise session and have produced a dvd of the children in pre-school. These need not take much of your time as fifteen or twenty minutes is long enough for small children.
Information on what is happening
A notice board outside the Pre-school room shows the weekly activity plan, events and other articles of interest relating to children’s development and the running of the Pre-school. There is also a Parents’ noticeboard and a regular newsletter.
There is also a policy outlining Parental involvement in the Pre-school.
Read the parental policy (PDF).
We also have a policy on Settling in (PDF) which you will find useful.
