How Parents can take part in our Pre-school

Our Pre-school recognises parents as the first and most important educators of their children.  All of the staff see themselves as co-workers with you in providing care and education for your child.  There are many ways in which parents and carers (including grand-parents) can take part to make our pre-school a welcoming and stimulating place for children and their families, such as:

  • Exchanging knowledge about their children’s needs, activities, interests and progress with the staff
  • Helping at sessions of the pre-school
  • Helping to provide, make and look after equipment and materials used in the children’s play activities
  • Being part of the management of the Pre-school
  • Taking parts in events and informal discussions about the activities and curriculum provided by the Pre-school
  • Building friendships with other parents in the Pre-school
Joining In

Joining the rota is not the only means of taking part in the life of the Pre-school. You can offer to take part in a session by sharing your own interest and skills with the children. Perhaps you can play a musical instrument; show pictures, toys, clothes etc. from your own childhood; can paint or have a special collection of shells you could share with the children: come and talk about your new baby, or have a pet you could bring in to show us.

Do feel very welcome to drop into the pre-school, if you would like to see it at work or to speak with staff.

Key Persons

The Pre-school has a ‘key-person’ system. This means that each member of staff has a group of children for whom she is particularly responsible although all members of staff will work with your child.

Records of Achievement

Celebrating what children can do and where they go next is a big part of our work in the Pre-school. We therefore keep a ‘Record of Achievement’ for each child. Staff and parents working together on their children’s records of achievement is one of the ways in which ou Pre-school and parents can work in partnership. Your child’s Record helps us to celebrate together his/her achievements and also helps us to work together to provide what your child needs for his/her own well-being and to make progress.

Please share as much information about your child’s achievements as you can and please feel welcome to record this in your child’s Record of Achievement book.
