Partnership with parents

We recognise that parents are not only the most important people in their child’s life but also their first educators.

We believe that building strong relationships with parents and carers provides children the best possible opportunity of meeting their full potential.

Excellent links have been established with other early years professionals to support children's development. Links with other settings delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage, and transition arrangements for the move to school are in place and are highly effective in order to ensure a complementary curriculum and continuity of learning and care. Well-established communication between all professionals involved with individual children is in place and very successfully promotes their learning, development and welfare.

We aim to build relationships by:

  • Welcoming and valuing all children and their families
  • Respecting and valuing the knowledge, skills and experience that parents have
  • Understanding parents' perspectives and adopting a non-judgmental approach
  • Finding the time to engage in a genuine dialogue with parents in order to reassure them and build trust
  • Encouraging parental involvement, informal drop-ins and chats
  • Sharing valuable information on children’s learning and development and their experiences and interests

We will work with parents:

  • Open evenings and events, displays and newsletters
  • Key worker systems which provides continuity and someone for the children and parents to really get to know
  • Working together to support children when they first join us and during key transitions in their lives
  • Reflecting children’s home and community within our environment
  • Working with families to support young children and involving other professionals where additional experience and skills are required
  • Appreciating the importance of family to each child and recognising that there are a number of significant people to whom the child is attached, both adult and child
