It can be difficult for parents, when sending your child to nursery. It's a completely new environment for both child and parent. Rest assured that we will always do our best to make both you and your child feel welcome and safe. Below you can get to know the people, who will be making sure your child has an amazing experience at nursery.
Our little boy attended the nursery since he was a baby. The staff are amazing, Kinder Place Nursery was like a second family to us. Our little boy needed a lot of medication and extra attention and we felt completely confident that our son was really loved, cared for and extremely safe. When we needed extra support and help the nursery went above and beyond what was required. We sadly had to leave due to moving. But we miss them all very very much. I can't recommend this nursery highly enough.
We hope that at all times you will be happy with the service provided by our nursery. We want to work with parents as partners to ensure quality care and learning for children and we know that working together is essential if children are to learn and grow through their early years.
Below are the ways we want to work with you as parents to ensure we are working in the best interests of all children in their first years:
Our welcome sheets are completed when a child first begins their journey with us - this a great way to find out about what a child already knows, their home life, their interests, their culture and any additional needs.
Daily discussions with parents are vital to finding out about how children are, what they are interested in and how best we can support them as they grow and develop, if parents feel that they would like to have a more in depth discussions then we will work with them to find a suitable time.
We will work hard to ensure your child's portfolio on our learning book system is always available, this is a shared record of your children progress which parents can access online and added to so that this becomes a shared journey through their early years.
Termly reports and two-year-old progress reports are done in collaboration with parents and other professionals (as required) to ensure we are gaining all the information we need to support the next steps in children’s learning and development.
Our nursery policies and procedures are available to parents - parents receive an overview of all the relevant policies within their welcome pack but further information and other policies held can be found at nursery. Alternatively, a copy of any of our policies and procedures can be provided upon request.
Our open-door policy means that parents may visit during their breaks, lunch or just join us for a session to see what their child does whilst in nursery or just to have some contact time. If parents do not have the opportunity to call in then we welcome calls from parents who want to check how their child is getting along with their day.
Our nursery library offers parents the chance to share story sacks, books and games at home, parents can sign resources out as often or as little as they want from the selection available in the nursery foyer.
We will ask all parents to complete a questionnaire annually throughout their child’s time with us and an exit questionnaire as their child prepares to leave us. We welcome all feedback and will use it to improve our service and the care we provide for all children.
Parents evening is held annually in July.
