Parental Involvement

Nursery play

Parents are the first and foremost educators of their children. We provide an open door policy and a welcoming environment and involve parents in their child’s learning in as many ways as possible through social events, activity sessions and progress meetings, emails and through our Tapestry learning journals. We are always available to chat when you drop off our collect your child.

We will


  • Involve parents in shared record keeping about their child, both formally and informally, ensuring that parents have access to all written records on their own children. 
  • Ensure that parents are given information on a regular basis about their child’s progress and have the opportunity to discuss it with staff.
  • Ensure that all parents have opportunities to contribute from their own skills, knowledge and interests to the activities of the group.
  • Ensure that all parents are fully informed about meetings, conferences, workshops and training.
  • Consult with families about the times of meetings to avoid excluding anyone.
  • Hold meetings in venues, which are accessible and appropriate for all.
  • Welcome the contribution of parents, whatever forms these may take.
  • Provide opportunities for parents to learn about the nursery curriculum and about young children’s learning, in the nursery and at home.
