Parent Partnership

PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT

FSN actively encourages parental involvement in the care of their child, will listen to parents’ comments and opinions about their child’s progress, and aims to work with parents/carers supporting, or sign posting where appropriate. 

FSN believe that children benefit most from early years education and care when parents/carers and settings work together in partnership.

FSN views parents/carers as their children’s first and most important educators by involving them in their children’s education and in the full life of the setting.

We believe that our first encounter with parents/carers and children is crucial in helping to form a positive partnership between home and nursery.

Parents/carers have valuable knowledge about their child that will help practitioners to plan and provide appropriate experiences and learning opportunities for them. 

 

At St Nick's we offer themed, monthly stay-and-play sessions so our families can get involved in the nursery day.

We love to play outside. Also painting and playing in the play kitchen. The sessions have helped my child come out of their shell.

Babies have freedom to play and explore. The sessions get us out and about.
