Getting to know you


Home Visits

Before your child starts at nursery we will visit you at home. We will need to fill in some admission forms on this visit and hope to have the opportunity to get to know you and your child and for you to get to know us as well. We will also let you know what is happening for parents and carers. The nursery school is not just for children but you as well.

Key Worker

Your child will have a key worker in the nursery room who will help you with any questions you may have and ensure that your child settles in and progresses well. This member of staff is responsible for your child’s Record of Achievement. However, all members of staff are available for consultation.

Settling your Child into the School/Centre

This is a very important time for you and your child. We need to spend some time with you and your child making sure he or she is happily settled. Your key worker will discuss these arrangements on the home visit

Record of Achievement

This is a special book which records your child’s progress from the beginning of their time in nursery. It is kept in your child’s nursery room. It will include observations, photos, and samples of their work. This record is available for you to look at any time and we value your contributions from home such as photos and drawings. We will invite you to regular Better Together meetings to discuss your child’s progress, but remember that you can talk to staff at any time.
