How Parents Take Part

Our setting recognises parents as the first and most important educators of their children. All of the staff see themselves as partners with parents in providing care and education for their children. 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 the staff
  • contributing to the progress check at age two
  • helping at sessions of 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
  • 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
  • building friendships with other parents in the setting

 We welcome parents to drop into the setting to see it at work or to speak with the staff.
