Our setting recognises parents as the first and most important educators of their children. All of our staff see themselves as partners with parents in providing care and education for their children.

Ofsted reported in September 2017:-

"Partnerships with parents are good.  Parents are kept informed on all aspects of their children's care, learning and development.  Parents are highly complimentary about the pre-school and the positive impact staff have on their children".

We have an elected Parent Committee who work with the Pre-School management team to run our Pre-School they are:-

Chair - Laura Beale
Vice-Chair - Nicola Fleming
Secretary - Amy Lavin
Fund Raising Officer - Hayley Jennings
Fund Raising Support Officer - Anna Perfect
Committee Member - Marianne Mannion

Tuesday 2nd October, parents came into Pre-School to paint the wildlife hide in our new Natural Garden and plant out sensory plants - thank you!

There are many ways in which parents take part in making the setting a welcoming and stimulating place for children and parents, such as:

  • exchanging knowledge about their children's needs, activities, interests and progress with staff;
  • contributing to the progress check at age two;
  • helping at sessions at the setting;
  • sharing their own special interests with the children;
  • helping to provide and look after the equipment and materials used in the children's play activities;
  • being part of the committee of the setting;
  • taking part in events and informal discussions about the activities and curriculum provided by the setting;
  • joining in community activities, in which the setting takes part; and
  • building friendships with other parents in the setting.
