Parents As Partners

Working together in partnership with Parents and Carers

We recognise parents as the first educators of their children and our aims are to build positive working relationships with Parents, Grandparents  and Carers though working closely and communicating through the red  home/nursery link books which aide communication between working  parents and ourselves, to write in anything the child has achieved at  home or whilst they have been at Skamps Pre-school Day Nursery and  verbal communication through face to face meetings, texts or telephone  calls. On our Facebook page we update it to reflect what the children have been doing.

We  regularly send out questionnaires to parents to find out what they  like, don’t like, what do they want to see improved. Your Views are very  valuable to us to help us meet the needs of you and your child.

Involving Parents and Carers

We also encourage parents  to offer their skills during any of the topics we do throughout the  year, cooking, creative etc and in developing our knowledge of festivals  and celebrations and other cultures. Also we invite parents and Carers  to share their pets - to bring them in and show the children. 


Parents  can come and help out if they wish by putting their name down on the  parent’s rota and will have to be DBS checked which can be done through  the Nursery. More information can be gained from Gaynor.

How we inform Parents and Carers

We have a termly newsletter, various letters and notes,  and also we are on Facebook, which help to keep parents informed on what  is happening especially term dates and our topic and we have termly  parents meetings with key persons which are based on an appointment  system and if parents cannot make their appointment every effort is made  to ensure they can see their child’s key person at a mutual agreed time  so information can be shared.
