Being a registered nursery carries a heavy responsibility; it is a role that involves sharing responsibilities with parents and their families and recognising the prime role that they play in their children’s upbringing. After all, parents and families are the experts when it comes to their own children. Daily communication between us is of key importance.
We observe and record your child’s development and progress on the Tapestry app and this will be shared regularly with you, the parents, to ensure continuity of care between home and the setting.
We respect all families’ traditions and childcare practices. Our setting is in harmony with the values, practices and wishes of parents as far as possible in the context of caring for children from several different families.
If a child is identified as a child in need (Section 17 of the Children Act 1989), the nursery, normally with the parents’ permission, gives appropriate information to referring agencies. When we accept a new family into our nursery, we like to be sure that we can share openly any concerns or questions that may arise. We welcome questions, feedback, or discussions of any kind.
We publish a weekly email newsletter detailing upcoming events, our days off, and any other pertinent, fun or helpful information that may be of interest to you. All parents should check the newsletters or additional information sheets for important information, items you need to bring and special announcements etc.
Your child is entitled to 15 hours funding for 3 and 4 year olds from the term after their 3rd birthday until they start school. Your child may also be entitled to the extended entitlement offering an extra 15 hours per week. Read more about 30 hours funding for eligible 3 and 4 year olds
We understand how busy working families are and will always try to be as flexible as we can to accommodate your requirements. Just ask!!!!
We are always happy to welcome your ideas and thoughts 😄
