Research shows that where parents play a key part in educating their child, identify learning and development needs and provide appropriate development, then this will enhance the learning and development the child undertakes at the nursery.
In summary, to work in partnership with parents, Smilers Nursery will:
- Acknowledge parents as a child’s first and most enduring educators
- Assign a key worker to each child who will work to form a warm, trusting, respectful relationship with that child and their family
- Work with parents to enhance learning and development
- Establish an ongoing dialogue with parents, share information, take account of parents’ own observations of their child and support learning in the home
